As a person who is passionate about knitting needles, I believe that the process of knitting something beautiful should be as rewarding as the finished product. Because of this, I use Addi Turbo needles for all of my projects. They make my knitting more quicker than any other needles I have ever come across.
Working in a yarn store, I've knit with every type of knitting needle on the market. In our shop, we don't use anything else but Addi Turbo needles to work on the customer's projects. It is clear why this needle is considered the highest quality needle in the knitting industry.
These needles are made of nickel, so the yarn can slide smoothly from one needle to the other. For beginners, I would recommend Addi Natura needles which are made from bamboo until you get the basic stitches down. For everyone else, Addi Turbo needles are perfect for any project.
Other needles that are made of aluminum feel like they're scratching against each other. Many of these needles start chipping after only being used a few times. I also would not recommend acrylic and plastic needles, as they are too flexible for the motion of knitting.
Addi Turbo needles are perfect for almost any project. If you knit a lot of lace, it's worth it to check out the Addi Lace brass needles, but you can use Addi Turbo for lace projects as well. All the Addi needles have the size written on the cord, which is helpful for those who have a lot of needles to keep organized.
The Addi Turbos feature a very smooth join between the needle and the cord, a vital feature for smooth knitting. I don't even notice the join when I'm knitting with them. The angle of the point is perfect for knitting as well.
Interested in having a knitting needles set? The Addi Turbos come in a "Click" or interchangeable knitting needles set. If you purchase this set, it is a lot less expensive than buying the needles individually. Each needle in the set costs about $3.00. The sets have multiple cords you can snap on to whatever needle you need. Happy knitting!
