Review of Knit Picks Interchangeable Needles

I have never owned any interchangeable needles, mostly because the investment has never seemed worth it to me. I have a sample of the Knit Picks™ interchangeable needles, the tips I have are U.S. size 6 or 4 mm. in Harmony wooden needles, size 8 U.S. or 8 mm in Zephyr acrylic, and nickel plated Options U.S. size 4 or 3.5 mm. The needles all use the same cord and come with a tightening tool.

The needles are available as sets and as individual tip sets. This offers a knitter many options depending on the amount of money they would like to spend.
Pros

Cons

Knitting with the needles, however was wonderful. I am using Knit Picks™ Comfy Sport cotton yarn, the Harmony 4 mm wooden needles are light, smooth and not too slippery for the cotton yarn. Traditionally, when I knit with cotton I have used bamboo needles, which eventually splinter, but I have seen no sign of any roughness on these needles and am looking forward to finishing my sweater using them.
The biggest con I can come up with is the cost of investing in a new needle set or needles, but if you are just starting out in knitting and have not invested in a needle set or do not have a lot of individual needles these are very possibly the needles for you.

Happy Knitting!
