Have you heard of these new needles..
Well not so new I believe. One of my customers from work has ask my over two years ago if we sell knitting needles that bend in the centre and you only work with 3 needles she said…and if I have knit with them yet…?
Unfortunately at that time I had to say “NO” to both of her question….smiles, this would not be the case today.
As of today I own a set on my own. Today I bought a 2,5mm FlexiFlips needle from Serenity Knits See what I have worked up so far the cuff of two socks…The ladies indicated it is just like knitting with straight needles. Agree, but really short straight needles. I think this would be perfect for a project on a plane where one has to make sure your not poking the person beside you..smiles.
My thoughts are; my absolute favorite needle to knit socks would be the magic loop then comes the FlexiFlips and my least favourite one would be working with 4 or 5 double-pointed needles.
The FlexiFlips are truly a great solution if you not a fan of the magic loop. Great to put the knitting down too and not having to worry of loosing stitches , though keep an eye on that 3rd needle ..smiles. I was knitting away ……and being used to knitting with my magic loop let go of the needle at the end of the row to flip to other side….well that was my 3rd needle now hahah for me the needle ended up on the floor….just something to be aware off.
So far I like the FlexiFlips though…
