Circular knitting needles are needed in some projects to hold the stitches but we have it on GOOD authority that its a really good idea to knit ALL your projects on circulars. WHY you ask? It means all your stitches and the weight of your work sits in your lap while you knit, rather than on the knitting needles themselves. This gives your wrists a break!
It also makes measuring your work SO much easier. No more trying to place the needles to make a sort-of-but-really-straight kinda of arrangement.
Available in 80cm, these beautiful bamboo needles are suitable for everything but you largest work.
