Knit Picks DPNS - Can this be right?

I was looking at the Knit Picks DPNs on their site. I saw they are priced at $3.99 but it doesn’t say for what quantity. I emailed them and asked whether that $3.99 was for one needle for for a set.

They emailed me back and said that their DPNs come in a set of 5. For $3.99? Can this be right?

nods

yes, that sounds about right!

Yup! Best deal in town!!!

:muah: :hug:

Wow, that really is an excellent price for such well crafted needles. Or maybe I just expected them to be more.

I believe Mason has found the wonderous world of Knitpicks. It’s beautiful isn’t it?

:rofl:

I want to try DPN’s but I haven’t yet gotten the nerve (or the time due to many WIP’s), I would be afraid it would be really easy to drop a whole row of stitches with these since they appear slippery.

What do you guys think?

I love the takumi ones, which are on sale there too.
I’m afraid of metal dpns, not so much because of the stitches falling off, but of one of them going flying and someone losing an eye…

but I am very accident prone.

:out:

because getting speared in the eye with a wooden needle is preferable to getting speared in the eye with a metal needle? :thinking:

Weeeell, people have their standards :roflhard:

Then again, I once superglued my eye while doing arts and crafts :oops:

metal seems more aerodynamic?

so what you are saying is that the needles would fly further so you could potentially hurt someone in the next county instead of right next to you? :teehee:

I love my Options, but I use bamboo DPN’s. I have a hard enough time with DPN’s without having to worry about my stitches falling off.

I think bamboo is preferable for a first attempt at DPNs. I tried metal first and gave up. Bamboo made a world of difference because they are less slippery.

I would think metal would be preferable, no worries about being splinters. :teehee:

I will definately get some bamboo then! Jan always has the anwers and I bow :notworthy: to your experience and logic. :muah:

:teehee: You’re welcome!

Four bucks for FIVE DPN’s?!?!?!?!?!?!? Are you serious?!?!?!?!?!?

Better get to knitpicks… :out:

That’s exactly what I thought too.
