Small Review & a Giveaway!
I recently bought a pair of these Chiaogoo fixed circular needles to try out. I loved them so much I bought another pair. The points are nice and sharp, the joins are smooth and the cable is... an actual cable. Very strong and as I am using them on my current project I find I am knitting faster with them because I'm not worried about them coming unscrewed, or the tips breaking free of their casing. I have been knitting effortlessly with them. I would like you to try these needles out as well! All you need to do is comment on this post saying why you could use a good set of needles and what project you would try them out on. You will win a pair of Chiaogoo fixed circular needles in any size and cable length and I will also be throwing in 3 mini skeins of my handspun yarn. This giveaway will close on Sunday March 17th at 10:00 pm Sask time and I will randomly pick a winner. Good Luck!

Luv circular needles so much more than straight ones - the item you are knitting hangs so much more nicely than straight I find. (And circulars don't poke you in the sides either - haha!) I would most likely knit another pair of socks as that's all I know how to do on circulars - might try to do a hat again. Thanks for having the contest! :)

I can always use another pair of circular needles. Especially with a new baby, I have to leave projects all over the house and be opportunistic with my knitting . When he gives me five minutes I need something close to grab and knit a few rows .

I would use them for a sweater I've been promising my husband since we got married. With two little kids, knitting time is at a premium and anything that helps me knit faster is like gold.

I absolutely love my Chiagoo fixed circulars, they have a great feel to them and the yarn slides nicely across the join!

Circular needles are just so versatile - I can't think of what I would use plain old straight needles for anymore. (Double Pointed needles are another story) Would love to test out the chiagoo needles - I think I have the perfect yarn to turn into a wrap too....
Thanks to everyone who left me a comment :) There are so many good reasons to have a good set of needles! Here are the results of my random number generator
