Have you ever heard of square knitting needles? For the first time I read about it on Marion's blog. She is an incredible fiber artist and creates "jewels in fiber" with threads and gemstones. Read about the needles and her personal experience in "Knitting with Square Needles: Innovation or Gimmick?" post on her blog. The needles are invented by Kollage Yarns and designed to decrease stress and strain for those who love to knit. According to the inventors, they enable you to knit faster with more uniform stitches, they are great for slippery yarns and tight knitting, and are perfect for knitters with arthritis, carpal tunnel, or stiffness in hands and fingers. Sounds good, doesn't it?
If you have a personal experience with these innovative needles, please share it with us.
