Cocoknits' Bamboo Cable Needles are an absolute joy to work with. They're made of bamboo to provide more grip, something that's good to have when you're holding your stitches at the back or front to work your cabling magic. What I really like about the Cocoknits cable needles is the raised metal band in the middle. Not only does this help keep your stitches where they should be, but it also allows you to 'stick' it to the Cocoknits Maker's Keep. I'm always losing my cable needles, or they're rolling off my table, so having these stick with the wonders of magnetism, certainly keeps my stress levels in check. Such a good idea! I love them.
