Hiya Hiya End caps; looking forward to purchasing them

So when will we receive those Hiya Hiya point end caps? I’ve already written about my infatuation with my Hiya Hiya Steel Sharp knitting needles.

A little over a month ago, I stopped by the Ravelry forums and read, and commented, on the post about Hiya Hiya end caps. Instantly I thought about the panda, which is their logo… and I was hoping it would make an appearance on Hiya Hiya’s point protectors!

The moderator. Knittingzone. made this comment on the Hiya Hiya forum

I still do not know the answer to your question yet. The stoppers are a bit complex (and really cute) and the design is intended to be used for multiple purposes.

This was my response…

Ok, since you said they’re really cute, I’m now hoping the stoppers are little pandas. ;)

 

And it looks like my wish has come true…

Hi All,

Here is a picture of the new HiyaHiya Interchangeable stoppers and point protectors. I think they are really cute! We named him Li.

Hiya Hiya UK has is showing them on its site, although they’re not available yet… so perhaps we’ll see them soon?

I’m looking forward to seeing them available for sale. I usually don’t choose cute items for myself, but I do like these a lot… then again I’ve always loved pandas.

Hiya Hiya cable connector

Hiya Hiya cable connectors do the same thing as end caps – secure your work so you can use the needles for another project. They also can be used to extend your cable length.

 

Since end caps aren’t available (yet) I’ve been using Hiya Hiya cable connectors as a replacement. Just make sure you order the right size for your needle set since there are  small cable connectors and a large cable connectors. You also have the added bonus of using the cable connectors to extend your cables — if that’s needed.

I cannot say enough good things about my Hiya Hiya Sharps, I love them and haven’t touched my Knit Picks (except to wrap up a few and give away) since using my Hiya Hiya needles.

    Q – Opal you are so convincing that I had to purchase a set! They just arrived so I haven’t had time to try a needle. I got the small sized set.

    @curls and q, I hope you like them as much as myself. I love my Knit Picks needles, so was shocked that I liked Hiya Hiyas so much more. I do prefer stainless steel so Hiya Hiya had that going for them and I like pointy needles. The Hiya Hiya Sharps satisfies that craving. Congrats on your purchase, I really enjoy my Hiya Hiya Sharps and I hope you like them as much as I do, if not the used sets are snapped up quickly on Ravelry.
