After a long day of Black Friday shopping, and wracking my brain to find gifts for others, I came home to a wonderful present! The needles I won in the Ravelry contest arrived in the mail, and I am already madly in love. I only owned two sets of ChiaoGoo fixed cable needles before, and can’t wait to add to my set!
The kit comes in a lovely black and white case, with a stunning red ribbon band. It unzips to show half the needle slots filled (in my case, size 9-15s, the other “half” is for 2-8s). It came with three cable lengths (24″, 32″,40″), cable ends, a cable joiner, two keys for getting them apart, a set of stitch markers and a needle gauge. As I have come to expect from ChiaoGoo, the red cable is supple and flexible, the tips perfectly pointed for easy pick up, and the joins smooth and seamless.
The kit had barely been in the house for twenty minutes before I had some lovely bulky wool on it and a hat in progress. If you are still looking for a gift for that stitcher in your life, consider these!
