Why the Right Cable = Successful Cable Knitting Projects
The right cable needle and the feel of the needle in your hands is critical to crafting attractive cables and the fun you have knitting them.
Kinki Amibari (aka KA) scores high marks for both sizing and feel. This company with the improbable name produces one of the nicest cable needles I have seen and worked with. KA has been crafting bamboo tools and implements since 1916 and is the oldest bamboo knitting needle manufacturer in Japan.
They are special! Both bamboo sets and the plastic version include 3 cable needles, to handle all but the bulkiest fibers. Take a look at the detail!
Why We Love these Cable Needles
- Smoothly crafted from sustainable bamboo.
- Curved bow shapes (bamboo or plastic) or notched style are specifically designed to hold even slippery stitches. securely.
- Longer length than most cable needles (4.75" length).
- Sharp tips able to lift even the finest lace weight yarn stitches.
- Warm in your hands and comfortable to hold.
These are truly beautiful knitting accessories and a favorite of the Yarngirls here at NobleKnits.
The Rose Tool Holder
From Lantern Moon, each rose tool holder is constructed with furls of softly ruched velvet. The colors are rich and the velvet is pliable, so you can unfurl those petals and tuck away lots of tools (think double pointed needles, shawl pins and cable needles).
The center of the rose has a hidden tube that will hold your scissors too.
The bases are lightly weighted for stability and covered with an attractive tapestry fabric.
Each Rose measure 4" high x 4" wide and comes in the colors below.
