For Knitters And The Knitters They Love…

October 30, 2007 at 7:43 am 1 comment

Not that I am terrific at it, but I love to knit. I consider myself an enthusiastic beginner. Beginner or otherwise, all knitters know that it’s completely “normal” to have many, many (many!) projects going at once. My husband thinks I made this fact up, but I swear it’s true!

So lots of projects yielded putting one down for several weeks. I picked it back up this weekend and realized for the first time that with knitting (as with most things), you get what you pay for. I had purchased a set of Signature Needle Arts size 9 knitting needles with a stiletto tip and they are hands down the finest needle I have ever worked with in the 7 or so years I’ve been plugging along.

Signature Needle Arts needles are made in Kenosha, Wisoconsin. In full disclosure, I’m from the city right next door so I was buying a set of these needles from my “neighbors” no matter what. The needles were conceptualized and put into production by a knitter that was tired of commercial needles being too dull or too weak, and often not made in America. 

Each set of needles are custom. You go to their web site and you pick the size, length, decorative end and the needle tip. All this customization and you still receive your product really quickly. The customer service is awesome. I placed my order and the same day received a call from the owner offering a suggestion for a different needle tip for the project I was doing…and she was absolutely right!

Signature Needle Arts products have been featured in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, they have beautiful ads in Vogue Knitting and Interweave, and they were very well received a Stitches Midwest a few months ago. Soon they will be putting double pointed needles into production.

So if you or a friend is a knitter, consider adding these beautiful needles to your/their collection. No kidding, you will be tempted to throw away any plastic or aluminum needles you’ve used in the past and make these needles your new collection!
