I want to buy straight single point knitting needles sizes 5mm and 4.5mm (which I think is a 7 and 8 US). I’m wondering what material would be best and what make. They have to have a fine point, be light and 12" long so that I can tuck the left one under my arm. If posible I’d like them to be ones that help knit faster.
My second question is: has anyone here ever knitted with ebony needles? Just wondering if they’re worth the $$$$.
Thank you all.
