This summer I ordered my first set of interchangeable needles; Knit Picks Options nickel plated set. Since purchasing, I’ve used them for most of my knitting projects. Circular or straight, it doesn’t matter. I usually reach for my circular knitting needles. And while I like them, I’m always interested in having a backup set.
A few hours ago I purchased a size 6 Hiya Hiya sharp, steel interchangeable needle. From my research, they seem to be just as sharp as the Knit Picks I now have. If I like them, I’ll purchase my own set of Hiya Hiya Sharp steel interchangeable needles. What I do like about Hiya Hiya interchangeable knitting needles is that the needles go down to a size 2. I use size 2 and 3 a lot. Knit Picks only goes down to a size 4.
I’d heard about Hiya Hiya needles (thanks to Ravelry.) But it was Amanda’s post about Hiya Hiya needle that made me want to eventually check them out. Who knows, perhaps my review will be as glowing as hers. We’ll see, I should have my size 6 knitting needles sometime next week. If I do like the needles, I’ll purchase both Hiya Hiya sets size 2 -8 and size 9 -15.
