Darn it darn it darn it

Update: The Early Spring sock pattern has been posted on the Crystal Palace Yarns web site.

I didn't care for this set of Takumi needles anyway. They were a bit too flexible for my liking. But still, it would have been nice if they lasted through the project.

Oh well, I've replaced them with a set of Crystal Palace DPNs, which I prefer. And I'm not just saying that because this pattern is for their web site--I like the tips better, the finish is smoother, and they're more rigid. Onward!

  • I also like the Crystal Palace dpns. Wishing for some Lantern Moons. Sometimes I fix a customer's knitting on Lantern Moons and while I'm a metal needle girl, the LM's are very nice.

  • Yikes. I've heard those needles can be a bit flimsy. Do you prefer bamboo to wood? I just tried some Colonial rosewood needles the other day and love them.

  • I don't know if I'd like other wooden needles--I've only tried bamboo. Thanks for the recommendations.

  • Oh yes. I've been there. Turns out that size zero and one brittany birch needles are not worth the cost, since they snap so easily. Back to bamboo for me!

  • I have sworn off Brittany needles forever myself. LOVE the Crystal Palace needles for socks and such, although I also really like Inox. They seemt to be hard to find though...
