When our selection of Signature Needles arrived in the shop, we needed to work with them to understand what all the fuss was about.These needles were designed by a knitter who just happened to work at a family-owned precision machine shop that makes custom metal components. When her desire for needles with beautifully sharp points inspired her to bring her hobby to work, Signature Needles were born.Many of us at the shop have become converts and find their smooth surfaces and fine points a dream to use for lace work. All of those decreases (especially when you are knitting or purling more than a few stitches together at once) can be done so much more easily with a nice sharp point. And some of us (Dawn, Kate, Kristin, Julie C and Connie Bea) reach for them no matter what we're casting on for!These needles are silky smooth and for those of us who like the speed and efficiency of working with metal needles, there are none finer.Dawn has shared with us, "The stiletto point enables me to get into any stitch, and the butter smooth join catches on absolutely nothing. They are pricey, but worth every penny. I don't think twice about spending that same amount of money on yarn, and these needles will continue to help me enjoy many future projects in my Ravelry queue."What better time than the holidays to treat yourself (or someone you love) to something special that will bring so much pleasure to the craft? You'll enjoy every stitch in the new year with these needles that are available in almost every size imaginable in double points as well as circulars.Stop on by the shop before the holidays and try a pair out. They are worth their weight in gold.
