Small Needles - What's The Benefit?
Often we get asked 'Why do you make 3 lengths of needles?' 'What am i supposed to do with these small needles?'
We make the small 13cm length needles for several reasons, they are great for:-
Beginners to learn on, the shorter the needles the more control you have
Children as they fit in their hands better
Making small items such as toys, or gloves, who wants to have a 33cm needles when knitting with 5 stitches??
It has been scientifically proven that if you use a needle that is too long it puts pressure on your wrists and causes pain, over time this can lead to injury.
Be kind to your hands, if you have less that 30 stitches on the go, use a shorter needle!
EVERY PAIR OF NEEDLES WE SELL ARE AVAILABLE IN THE 13CM LENGTH SO THERE IS NO REASON WHY YOU CANNOT BE COMFORTABLE AND STYLISH!
