love these Hiya Hiya interchangeable knitting needles

I’m trying out the Hiya Hiya interchangeable knitting needles (and a few other cute goodies). Want to see?

Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles and notions

These here are the steel needles with 5″ tips, but they also come with 4″ tips or in bamboo). They are WONDERFUL. To start with, I love the elegant silk brocade case. You can’t help but feel these are really special needles. The case is very functional with well-designed pockets for the multiple-sized cables and tips. Most of all, I love the design of the tips, the secure join of needle tips to cables, and the smoothness of both the needles and the joins. The cable is so flexible; it doesn’t fight me at all.

Using a silk yarn is the ultimate test in smoothness of circular needle cables and these Hiya Hiya’s have a perfect score as far as I am concerned. Oh, and aren’t these little yarn-ball markers just the cutest thing?  They came in a little red squeeze-opening “dumpling” case I photographed lying here beside my in-progress knitting.
