This Takumi Combo Needle set is so nice!
I know, I know, all things yarn and tools to use yarn are great, but seriously, this is a great set! First off it comes in a zippered case that is padded synthetic leather and the zipper feels sturdy. I almost feel like an executive knitter about to create a masterpiece when I hold it and unzip it; it truly brings delight!
Once unzipped, the case opens all the way to reveal TWELVE pairs of perfectly crafted bamboo needle tips ranging from size 3 (3.25mm) to size 15 (10mm) held securely by individual elastic straps on one side and in a pouch on the opposite side you find 5 nylon cords in the popular sizes 16", 24", 29", 36" and 48". There's also an instruction booklet for use and care information.
There's enough room inside the zipped case when closed to store a folded letter-size pattern print out and a small flat notions holder for your work in progress. To use them, simply select the needle size you need and screw it onto the cord taking care not to overtighten; there's an O-ring at the end of each needle tip to prevent it coming unscrewed while knitting. You can elect to put a needle on each end for a true circular knitting needle or Clover makes stoppers which you can attach to one end for flat knitting.
We also carry both the
Cord Connectors #3650 and the Cord Stoppers #3651 which are sold separately and not included in the set. Also, if you loose or break an interchangeable needle, we have individual sizes available.
All of these items are available through both of our Etsy channels, with the biggest savings at www.redrockyarns.com where we refund 10% on all items all the time and you don't have to wait for coupons!
