    Great needle education. You are such a great ambassador for the knitting world. As you said you can never have too many needles as it seems there is always a pattern that you don’t have the right needle for….would love the knitting sampler.

    I’d love the crochet sampler. I’ve never tried a Prym hook.

  • Jessica G Harlow

    07.12.2021 at 15:54

    I’d have to choose crochet, because I already knit and have a good set of interchangeables. I only have 3 or 4 crochet hooks and 2 of them are the same size!

  • Shawna Lancelot

    I’m interested in the crochet hook sampler. I’m finishing a crochet afghan my mom had started long ago, so it’s the perfect opportunity to test-drive different hooks with my weird crochet hook orientation — point-up instead of point-down.

    I have Chiaogoo interchangeables, Addi FlexiFlips, and Knitter’s Pride products in my collection; I even have some square needles from way back when! KNITTING TRIVIA: If you have a Boye Needlemaster interchangeable set that you love — don’t judge me! — you can use Chiaogoo cables with them if you also purchase size S connectors (the tiny screw pieces that connect the cable and the needle).
