Knitter's Pride Dreamz

 
I've been working on my socks and have been having such a hard time with the darn knitting needles! I've been using the Takumi Bamboo double pointed needles I bought at my local Joann's.  I've broken 2 and the rest of them are all bent. I'm not doing anything crazy with them, just trying to finish up my socks!

I went to the my local knitting shop and asked about alternatives to my bamboo needles. I'm so happy I asked! I bought a set of 6 color coded double pointed needles made of symfonie wood (whatever that is!).  The pack I chose is used for knitting socks.

I couldn't wait to try them out! I started using them right away and love them! They feel more sturdy and are a bit shiny so they yarn just glides over them. I feel as though I'm knitting quicker. I'm very happy with my latest knitting purchase.

If you ever have the chance, splurge on yourself and try them out. I think they'll make a better knitter out of anyone! (At least, that's what I'm hoping for!)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I'm almost done my socks and will be posting them soon!
