I know it’s a bit late to be asking, but I’d like to get some help in picking out adjustable needles for my wife’s Christmas present. She’s only been knitting about a year but absolutely loves it. I’ve already gotten her a nice yarn bowl to go with the needles.
The name she’s mentioned when I sneakily probe for info is Knit Picks. I’ve looked at their website and saw several sets that all pretty much looked the same to me.
I don’t know what’s good, better or best, all I know is that my wife prefers her bamboo needles over metal but would be happy with whatever gets the job done. She’s mentioned that the clear plastic cable that connects her needles drives her crazy when it keeps curling up, too, so if that’s less prone to happen with one brand or another I’d love to know!
She’s mentioned Knit Picks because she said they’re the best balance of price and quality from what she’s seen.
Is that the best brand for a nice present, or is there another that would be recommended? And if at all possible, could someone link me to a good budget friendly set for beginners?
