I’m about to start a project – lace thigh-high legwarmers in a fingering weight yarn – that calls for three sizes of DPNs. Trouble is, the thought of doing over 200 rows of 76 stitches on double-pointeds, twice (both legwarmers), makes me die a little bit inside.
So I found these 9" and 12" circular needles from KA online. I’m aware that Addi makes Turbo needles in the 12" size, but they’re far more expensive and I’m on a college student’s budget. I’m tempted to buy the KAs from the internet store, but I’ve heard some people say that they’re are a dream, and some people say the joins are a huge, snagging nightmare, so I worry that my money might be utterly wasted.
Has anyone here used the KAs? It would be especially helpful if you’ve used the 12" needles. Thanks!
