I’ll explain why my favourite needles earned pride of place in my knitting bag. Do let me know which needles you prefer and why.

  1. Hi Hannah. My favourite needles are Knit-pro Zing Circular needles either fixed interchangeable.

    They are ideal for me, as I have Arthritis, and they are the most comfiest to use. I actually stopped knitting for several years after using long metal needles held under my arm.
    Then I tried different makes of circular needles, but the Zing needles are the best, I prefer metal needles as the yarns glides along easily.

    This has developed into a love of knitting small items especially top down baby cardigans.
    It is only since last year I made a small triangular shawl and this too has become my 2nd favourite.

    Sadly I cannot knit as much as I would like to due to Arthritis, but I still love knitting.

    Mary ?
