Seeing Red

We have a nice, new selection of ChiaoGoo Red needles in stock so I thought I would share with you what I like about the Reds.


ChiaoGoo Reds are their stainless steel metal needle offering.  They are priced slightly higher than the bamboo needles from the same company but the cords are more flexible and the tips are very nice.  The shank of the needle has a slight bend in it which I don’t notice in the longer lengths but the shorter ones – oh that bend makes knitting SO much nicer! And the join, well we all know that will make or break a needle and I am pleased to say that these joins are very smooth and perfectly lovely.

We have Reds in sizes 0-11 and 16″-32″ lengths and even 40″ in sock sizes for those of you who enjoy Magic Loop, 2 at a time socks.

The needles are not yet available on the website but feel free to call the studio any time to check on size or selection.  Or, better yet – come by!  We would love to see you.
