NOTE: For tips on using these needles and their parts, see How to use Lykke (and other) interchangeable needles.
For four years, I've been looking for knitting needles I loved enough to put them in the shop, and these new Lykke circular needles are everything: great-looking, hard-working and impeccably detailed.
The "Driftwood" needles are made of smooth, hard birch with a beautiful grayish finish that varies with the woodgrain, while the pairs match up — subtle but stunning. The tips are long and slender. The black metal endcaps have the sizes etched into them, not printed, and a smooth join to the cables. And the black cables are likewise smooth and flexible.
The interchangeable set — which includes sizes US4-US17 — comes in a grey denim fold-up case with elastic that's perfectly matched to the size of each needle pair for a snug fit. The large pocket contains 5 cords (two 24", two 32", one 40"), 4 keys, 2 cord connectors and 4 stoppers.
