These circular needles were designed especially for sock knitting. They are styled after the Addi Turbo Lace needles which have extra-pointy tips and a shiny nickel plating. You will love the way these needle points dive for the fine stitches.
Sock Rockets have a 40″ cable that is perfect for the magic loop method.
HINT #1: The 2.75 mm needle is an in between size that is often not found in other needle lines. If you have been disappointed with hand knit socks that have a loose fit, try this size before you go down to knitting on a US #1. It can be the “deal maker” in your sock knitting.
HINT #2: So you try Sock Rockets and become a convert. What do you do with your other 40″ needles? That’s easy. Use them as your parking lot needles. There’s always a project that needs to be “parked” and the old 40 inchers are fine for that purpose.
