Ain't they purdy?



My package from Knit Picks came the other day. My full set of Harmony needles, plus some fixed circulars in small sizes. Aren't they gorgeous?? The colors in photos and the catalogue make them look a little garish - like the colors are flat. But they aren't -- they have depth and a little bit of opalescence that is just stunning! And because they're lacquered wood, they're much slicker than other wood or bamboo needles I've used. So, I won't be getting rid of my Addi Naturas - but I am thrilled!!

Oh, and anyone looking for good, strong wooden dpns -- look no farther! One of the reasons Knit Picks went with the lacquered wood (and it's lacquered in layers because of the different colors,) is for strengh in the sharp tips they wanted to use.

I've had my set for about a month now and I am in love with these needles. I placed an order today for additional needle tips. Enjoy!
