Hello, my dear friends! In this post, I want to talk about a new Knitting Needles Set that KnitPro.eu sent me to test out!
I think this is the first Product Review Post that I am writing, but it is good to share my opinion about different products that I am using or trying.
I know that my website is more about crochet content and not that much about knitting, and this is because I am not a faster knitter nor experienced.
I prefer to keep this craft as something other than what I am doing most of the time, crochet.
I have to tell you that knitting helps me a lot when I need to take a break from crochet, and it is something that I will recommend if you are like me and can not keep your hands away from yarn, even when you need a break.
First of all, this Self Love knitting needles set is gorgeous! It is! The package is excellent and looks like a book, where you will find everything you will need, with each “chapter” to write your own story.
What you will find in this set:
- Interchangeable Needle Sizes 3.5, 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5, 6.0, 7.0 & 8.0mm with matt black connectors.
- 4 memory-free, stainless-steel cables in length of 60, 80 (2 nos.) & 100cm, 4 end caps; 4 ellen keys; one set of cable connectors
- 1 Crocheted bookmark
- 1 Knitting Journal
Right away, after I got this set in the mailbox, I was so eager to start writing my own story. I took the knitting journal (which has sections where you can take notes about your project, plus a chart paper to draw your project idea), and I sketched a sweater. A sweater that I want to make for my dad for his birthday! This year will be the first year after so many, that I can visit my dad on his birthday and I am glad about it!
I know that the most used knitting needles are the metal ones, and working with bamboo needles might not be a good experience, but I was impressed by these! The stitches were sliding perfectly without feeling any hindrance.
The ellen keys are quite a good thing because you can use them to secure the needle with the cable. Still, I might force it too much because the needle connector became loose, which is not a good thing, and I recommend not to do that if you still want to be able to use all the needle sizes. 🙂
In other news, for me, this Self Love Set is everything I need to continue my knitting Journey, and I am sure that for many of you will be! Plus, it can be a true sign of love if you choose to gift it to your favorite Knitter!
