  1. Yvonne says:

    I love my knit pro wooden needles. I find my stitches are smoother and more regular than if I use metal ones. Also my hands don’t get as sticky.

  2. Jo says:

    Knitter’s Pride Cubics for me all the way!

  3. Jacqui says:

    I love using my knit pro interchangeables but I’m very disappointed that the needle size wears off so quickly so I have to use a needle gauge now. Also the wood at the tips started to wear within a few months. I doubt they will be useable for more than a year

    I love the Knit Pro Zings and have ordered from “across the pond”. Does Knitter’s Pride have an equal?
