These are the needles we manufactured for our Learn to Knit Kits
. We have a whole stash of them on the Yarn Bus, of course. We designed them and knew they'd be good needles, but they actually came out a lot nicer than even we expected. (Although, the first prototypes came back so sharp that they actually made Elise bleed! We fixed that, of course, and the tips are beautifully rounded now.) Kevin, who usually uses Addi Turbos, even for all his back and forth knitting, always uses these when he's knitting with #13. They're really nice to use--and beautiful in Flying Fingers Purple (naturally).
