  1. Don’t panic

    July 25, 2011 by enid

    Knit knit knit, POP! What the What? I look down and what do I see? My circular interchangeable needles spontaneously disassembled. I was still working on the swatch of kidsilk haze. Mohair, lace weight, light light knitting, of all the things I’ve knitted on those needles. No worries I have another cable to replace them but I find it comical, it’s not like I was knitting cotton or something super chunky and heavy on the needles.

    oops

    Yesterday I was coveting a set of Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles. They come in this really pretty carrying case. But I thought to myself “My knitpicks Options Interchangeable Harmony Wood Circular Knitting Needle Set are just right. I like the cable on them, I haven’t had a problem with them YET and I don’t see spending $70+ on another set” I know I’m cheap but I also don’t have the space at home to store all this extra stuff.” However if I didn’t have a set already, I might have given these a try. I might someday just not now. The cables on the Hiya Hiya are smooth but it also rotates so you never have to stop and adjust the needles or the cable. My mom bought a set of circular needles from Hiya Hiya (not interchangeable) and I really liked that feature.

    What’s your favorite? Hiya Hiya or KnitPicks Options, Denise. Did I leave any out.

    P.S. I just called KnitPicks customer service and they replaced the cable at no cost to me. How cool is that. I am so grateful. ­čśÇ
