Top 5 Reasons You Need a Pair of Signature Needle Arts Needles
|Sponsored| I recently got to try out a pair of Signature Needle Arts needles, and y’all—I am in love. These may be the best needles I’ve ever used! Made in the U.S.A. of high-quality aluminum, these needles are pointy and have the perfect semi-slippery finish. Here are the top 5 reasons you need a pair of Signature Needle Arts knitting needles:
As a person who knits a lot of socks (A LOT OF SOCKS), I love anything that makes my socks go faster. These size 1 (2.25 mm) needles are tiny, adorable, and perfect for cranking out a fresh pair. With a stiletto tip on one end and a blunt tip on the other, these circular needles are perfect for both fussy lace patterns and softer yarns that tend to split; just use the tip best suited to your project. It’s like two needles in one!
It has happened to all of us: You use a slippery yarn and metal double-pointed needles, and the next thing you know, the needle has slipped out and your stitches are running as fast as they can. Fortunately, Signature Needle Arts has come up with a solution to this! All their double-pointed needles have a “slip/grip” finish that allows you to easily get the tip into stitches, but also keeps the yarn on the needles. You can get these needles in 4″, 5″, 6″, and 8″ lengths.
If you enjoy knitting lace, you know how difficult it can be to find a needle that’s pointy enough. The stiletto needle tips were specifically designed to be long and pointy for working those decreases in lace patterns. On the other hand, if you tend to poke holes in your finger as you knit or enjoy working with loosely spun yarn, the blunt needle tip might be a better choice. Like sharp needles with a shorter tip? Try a middy needle tip! Along with the type of point, you get to choose a bell, spiral, or teardrop cap. Also, you can have your needles monogrammed so everyone knows they’re yours.
Signature Needles Arts may make the only interchangeable needle set where the cables are matched to specific needle sizes. This means that the needles don’t have a weird skinny section where they connect to a one-size-fits-all cable, so your knitting moves more smoothly from needle to cable.
Back to socks. (I can never leave them for too long.) I usually work my socks using the magic loop method, so I’m always on the lookout for great circular needles in longer lengths. Smaller needle sizes always work better as fixed circulars, but you still have some options here. You can get size 1 (2.25 mm) and size 2 (2.75 mm) needles with stiletto tips (for those who like to make lacy socks and need a longer tip) or middy points (for those who prefer a shorter-yet-pointy tip). You can also choose between 4″, 5″, and 6″ needle lengths, depending on how you grip your needle, and a total length between 16″ and 47″.
