Chiaogoo Twist Shorties Interchangeable Set

FINALLY, an interchangeable knitting needle set sized for SOCK KNITTING!

The Chiaogoo Twist Shorties interchangeable system contains both 2″ and 3″ (5cm & 8cm) tips allowing knitters to make short circulars 9″ through 14″ (23cm – 36cm) long, including differential circulars (those are needles with different length tips on each end). See the Chart below for all the possible combinations.

Set Includes:

  • 12 different sets of stainless steel lace tips in sizes US 0, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3 and metric 2, 2.25, 2.5, 2.75, 3, 3.25mm. The tips are solid and have a tightening hole near the threads.
  • Compact, red nylon zippered case, includes a tip sleeve that securely holds all 12 sets of tips
  • end stoppers
  • stitch markers
  • a mini needle gauge (it’s so cute!)
  • three different cable lengths: 5″, 6″ and 8″ or 13cm, 15cm & 30cm long and are the same diameter as the current red MINI cables.

Chiaogoo’s needles are made with the same high-quality stainless steel tips and red nylon-coated steel cables as their other sets. The needle tips feature a lifeline hole to make adding a lifeline as simple as knitting across the row. In addition to knitting needle tips, included with each set are easy-to-read, coded cable connectors, end stoppers, T-shaped tightening keys, stitch markers, a needle gauge and compact, zipper-enclosed, fabric case. SPIN & TWIST tips, cables and accessories are all switchable!

NEW Louet/Kollage Interchangeable Needle Sets

We just got the new Louet/Kollage Interchangeable Needle Sets and they are LOVELY! I’m seriously feeling extremely enthusiastic and looking forward to see what they make next.  Please note, these needles are SQUARE shaped, which many people find extremely comfortable (some find them easier to use, I’ve always found them enjoyable). Hopefully an interchangeable round needle set will be forthcoming too?

Anyway, these are the things I love about the Louet/Kollage Interchangeable Needle Set:

  • The needles are Beautiful. They’re smooth, elegant, a gorgeous medium grey aluminum.
  • The size markings are ETCHED in the needle, so they won’t be going anywhere.
  • The cables/cords are extremely pliable.
  • The needles can rotate once they are connected to the cables.
  • The join is quite smooth (at least on the ones I tried)
  • The case for the FULL set is GREAT! It’s sturdy and extremely well made. It has space for a second set of needles (presumably for when they come out with a set of shorter tips?), as well as two large clear pouches for more cords (so you can see what you are looking for), and another zipper pouch on the outside of the case. The case along could easily retail for at least $50.
  • The case for the MINI set is lovely. It’s pretty, slim, well made, and easy to use.
  • The Youtube video (see below) on how to connect and disconnect them is clear and easy to follow.

I recommend watching this video before diving into your Louet/Kollage Interchangeable Needle Set, their system is kind-of novel.

NEW 9″ Circulars for Socks

Chiaogoo 9″(23cm) Circular Needles

You’ve been asking for them (I think because of avideo tutorial), so I ordered 9″(23cm) circular needles, and they have finally arrived! Personally, I like a 12″, but some people have a hard time and need something smaller – sorry, couldn’t help myself!)
