I really like the Clover bamboo DPNs and those are the ones I use. However, I need to buy some new sizes (2 and 3) and I’m wondering about the Harmony DPNs.
I use the nickel-plated needles for my regular knitting, but for DPNs, I like wood. To be honest, I think the Harmony circular needles are really ugly with the multi-colored “chevron” kind of design (I know a lot of you think they’re beautiful, but they’re just not my style). It looks like the DPNs are actually striped instead of the design that’s on the circular needles, but I can’t tell from the pictures.
My questions are:
- Are the DPN’s striped or are they the same “pattern” as the circular needles? Can anyone post a close-up picture? I googled but couldn’t find a good picture.
- If you have used the Harmony DPNs and the Clover needles, how do you compare them?
