Comment on Lykke Driftwood Interchangeable Circular Needle Set by Mari Mazzeo http://www.knittersreview.com/lykke-interchangeable/#comment-1079 Tue, 25 Dec 2018 19:39:41 +0000 http://www.knittersreview.com/?p=7919#comment-1079 We sell Lykkes at our LYS and our customers love them. In fact, many interchangeable sets were purchased for Christmas gifts. I have a couple of the fixed needles, to try them out, and love them. From all of the wooden needle brands we’ve sold, I can say our customers have liked these the best, so far.

Comment on The Beginner’s Guide to Writing Knitting Patterns by Kate Atherley by Mari http://www.knittersreview.com/the-beginners-guide-to-writing-knitting-patterns-by-kate-atherley/#comment-1076 Mon, 24 Dec 2018 01:51:46 +0000 http://www.knittersreview.com/?p=44#comment-1076 I don’t think so, it helps you to be clear on your written instruction to your pattern so it would be easy to fallow and anyone would understand what you mean.

Comment on Indian Lake Artisans Hexagonal Knitting Needles by Mela Ecker http://www.knittersreview.com/indian-lake-artisans/#comment-1050 Fri, 23 Nov 2018 17:05:40 +0000 http://www.knittersreview.com/?p=8070#comment-1050 I’ve bought several sets of theses needles over about a 4 year span. They are by far the most breakable needles I’ve ever had. Each year I would attend Vogue Knitting New York, and return a pair for replacement. I had them break mid prodject, with the yarn on, size #10, and the tops broke off one set as I pulled them out of my needle holder. They splintered just under the cap, een as I pulled straight up. I really love the feel of these, but they are way too fragile.

Comment on Alafoss Lopi by Jackie http://www.knittersreview.com/alafoss-lopi/#comment-1047 Wed, 21 Nov 2018 10:00:45 +0000 http://www.knittersreview.com/?p=6726#comment-1047 I am curious about how blunt the needles need to be stop snagging. I recently bought a ball of Lett-Lopi (only one because I was worried about scratchiness, to be honest). I did my tension square, and sure enough there was some splitting of the fibres – I used KP Symphonies, and to be honest my circulars/interchangeables veer to the finger stabbing variety, so I will need to buy some, and multiple lengths, with possibly dpns for the sleeves/neckline. Unfortunately, in the UK where I am based (and I suspect in the US too), finger stabbers predominate. I have tried Addi Olive Wood clicks before and the join isn’t great (where the wood meets the metal cylinder bit). I have a variety of Addis and for some peculiar reason most if not all of them are slightly bent (and it’s not just smallish ones either) – and I am a loose knitter too. Not sure if it makes any difference to the snagging issue but I am your typical British/US picker/thrower, although I might attempt continental for the colourwork section. I had narrowed it down to Addi Turbos, Hiya Hiya bamboos and Lykke (although I am not convinced they are much blunter than the Symphonies).

Comment on The Essentials of Knitted Lace by Janice Stewart http://www.knittersreview.com/the-essentials-of-knitted-lace/#comment-1042 Thu, 15 Nov 2018 22:08:50 +0000 http://www.knittersreview.com/?p=16#comment-1042 I fairly new to knitting. I love this pattern and would like to make a scarf. However, I would like the scarf to be nine inches wide and at least 72 inches long. How do I work the pattern with these dimensions? I’d really appreciate your help.
Thank you for your help.
