They had me at "space age polymer"
I haven't tried them yet, but they arrived yesterday (one day turnaround?)
I taught a beginner's sock class last week and one of my students had several sets of these Comfort Zone DPNs (all the sizes they make!) in different colors. It wasn't the colors that appealed to me as much as the fact that they're unbreakable (I break my 2mm DPNs regularly). I'm not fond of the length, but I'll let you all know whether I like these needles. I just got the two sizes I use the most because I'm a bit leery of plastic needles in general.
Regular blogging to resume soon along with a free pattern for my blog readers.
