You’ve heard the buzz about the new needles from Knitter’s Pride… When they first debuted we heard comments like “they’re (the needles) going to change the knitting needle industry”. They’re the talk of the town so we had to take a look. What did we find upon close inspection? – Terrific | good quality |high performing needles at affordable prices.
So as a result, we’re pleased to announce the addition of Knitter’s Pride Nova knitting needles in 10″ and 14″ straight, 6″ and 8″ double points and interchangeable tips and cords, as well as Knitter’s Pride Dreamz knitting needles in 5″ double points and interchangeable tips and cords.
Nova needles are made from hollow brass pipes plated with high quality polished nickel. The result is a durable, lightweight needle with a smooth, satiny surface. Stitches will move quickly and freely. Nova needles taper nicely to sharp points making them well suited for all knitting projects.
Dreamz needles will first catch your eye because of their beautiful colors. Don’t be fooled though. They’re not just another pretty face. Each size in the line is color coded for quick identification and easy organization. They are made of densified laminated birch from Vermont (though manufactured in India), and are very strong and warm to the touch. Other highlights include, tapered heads with good points, lightweight and a smooth glossy surface for super easy gliding stitches.
The interchangeable system, available in both the Dreamz and Nova, is fantastic. Tips and cords can be purchased individually, allowing you to customize your set. You can purchase only what you need and want. Don’t purchase an entire set when you’ll knit on only half the needle sizes. You can buy additional tips and cords in those sizes you use most frequently. If you like the convenience and economy of pre-packaged sets, don’t worry. They are also available.
Knitter’s Pride interchangeable cords, available in six lengths from 16″-60″, can be used with both the Dreamz and Nova tips. The flexible, non-kinking cords are easy to attach to the tips with smooth joins over which stitches glide effortlessly. Each cord includes a tightening “key” and 2 securing end caps if you have to use your tips on another project. The system allows you to use your tips and cords as circular or flex needles. We’ve also found that the cords make great stitch holders.
So give Dreamz and Nova needles a try and let us know what you think. WE LOVE THEM!
