3. KnitPro Point Protectors are perfect for travelling knitters because they will ensure that all of your stitches stay on the needle, and that your knitting needles won't poke holes in your knitting bags.

4. KnitPro Nova needles are engineered from hollowed brass and quality plated nickel. These needles are smooth and lightweight-perfect for knitters on the go! Novas are available as single pointed, double pointed, fixed circular, and interchangeable circular knitting needles.
