Anyone tried these? I bought one directly from their website- a size 3, 40" circular. I started a pair of child-sized socks, and before I even finished the pair, the finish was chipping off. I emailed them and they sent me out a replacement needle at no cost, which was wonderful. Unfortunately, the replacement did the exact same thing! Maybe if that were the only problem, I would be willing to try again… however, I hate the join between needle tip and cable. It’s a big bump and it’s hard to wrangle the stitches over the bump. The cable part is fabulous, it’s amazingly soft, but the other problems are too much to deal with.
I was just wondering if anyone else had similar experiences with these needles? I know I knit a bit tight when knitting in the round, but I never have trouble moving stitches on my knitpicks circs. They have a nice smooth join, and the stitches just flow. On the Kollage, I literally have to stop every few stitches and force the stitches over the bump.
