Knitting Needle Sets
We are wild about Lykke handmade needles and hooks! They're clearly made by people who understand great-feeling and beautiful tools. These are on the Girl Friday web site because we use these needles ourselves and love working with these finely crafted tools.
Each set includes 12 pairs of 5-inch wooden or bamboo needles that are warm, comfortable and durable.
The needles connect smoothly and seamlessly to cords. For Lykke interchangeable needles, we find that it is important to tighten that connection just a little using the keys that are included.
The cords that are included are a durable synthetic that becomes supple after a little use. And some of our favorite things are the connectors that are included. Although the cord lengths are relatively short, the connectors can be used to easily extend the cord lengths to get as long as 84 inches! The range this provides is astounding! Plus, if you need to increase or decrease cord length mid-project, it's easily accomplished by adding or removing a section instead of spending time transferring to new needles.
As natural wood products there is color variation due to differences in wood grain and its ability to pick up stain colors. There is variation within each set, and if you appreciate natural beauty this is a great set of needles for you.
Each set comes with 12 pairs of needle tips*, 5 cords**, 2 connectors, 4 keys and 8 stoppers in a high quality case. Each case has 2 convenient pouches-one with a zipper and the other with a flap.
These sets make great gifts-to someone else or yourself!
