Wow! Thanks for posting that. I've had a pair of Blackthorns on my wishlist for awhile, but I think I'll try these instead.


I got a set of Karbonz doule point sock needles in size 1 to try out. I have some expensive wood dp's that break very easily in the size 1's, so I am hoping the Karbonz will offer the good quality without the breakage. So far, so good. The join at the tip is no big deal, I hardly notice it, and the stitches flow really well when I'm knitting. The needles don't bend either, a problem I was having with bamboo needles. These are a good deal, and I will be buying more of them.


I've been thinking of trying these for awhile now. I love bamboo DPN's & the square Kollage but am not fond of metal DPN's in general. I think a set or 2 will make their way into my next order.


How about the size One circular needles - cable length of 32? For us non-dpn sock knitters?

And I saw in the latest Vogue Knitting that Addi has a new sock needle line....

Just a suggestion, or two. Thanks!

Hi Allison, I just learnt how to knit socks 2 at a time and was wondering if you will be carrying the Karbonz Circular Needles?


I like to knit tightly on fine needles, so I am thrilled that these go down to size US 000, as I often find the US 0 is too big. I just might have to give them a try!


I have these needles in the circulars and I LOVE them. I am currently in the process of buying more....
