As Seen on Knitter's Review: Karbonz!


There's been a lot of buzz about our Karbonz needles; most recently, Clara Parkes shared her thoughts on these high-tech needles on the Knitter's Review website (note: Karbonz are distributed in North America under the Knitter's Pride brand). We're quite flattered with her analysis! If you've been curious about carbon fiber needles, click here to get the scoop from one of our industry's finest experts! You can also read more about our Karbonz needles on the Meadow Yarns blog!
Now for the best part: we'd like to give you a chance to try Karbonz out for yourself! Leave a comment on this post sharing why you'd like to knit with these needles for your chance to win one of three prizes: a pair of Karbonz Single-Point Needles, Double-Point Needles or Fixed Circulars. We'll randomly select three lucky readers as our winners on Friday, March 22. Be sure to leave your Ravelry ID or e-mail address so that we can contact you if you win!

  1. I have already bought a couple of pairs of DPN's - and I love them! So light and easy to hold. Now I really want to try the circulars..... please....!!

  2. I was keeping circulars in my hands at the craft store. Amazing, so light and smoth. It was really good to keep them in hands. But there were no 2,5 mm at the store :( So I'll try my luck here. Maybe this time I could win my dream needles.

  5. I was already looking for these wonderful karbonz needles here in Germany but I couldn't find them in any shops near me, yet. I heard so many great things on revelry about these needles, that they're so light and smoothly and that it's just such a joy to knit with them. I love all your needles and to win a pair of these would be just like a dream come true to me.
    Thank you for the chance to win this here. Oh, my ravelry name is Nate71 and my e-mail is renate@mcmartin.de
    Wishing you a fantastic sunday.

  17. Hi :) I live in Turkey, since I have bought my first set of interchangable needle set I have never used any other brand for knitting :) I have harmony, nickel and plastic set :) Would love to try my hand on one of them...But I would rather wish for a knitter to win without any set of these great knitting needles :)))

  18. It always great fo try and find new tools for our obsession. I have Knit Pro Tunisian Crochet Hooks set, which I very much like. So it would be nice to try something new from Knit Pro!

  19. I've a strong preference for steel and aluminum (for speed), but wood is easiest on my arthritic hands. I can't help but wonder if these would feel similar to wood, but with the sickness of metal.

  28. Knit-Pro interchangeables have revolutionised my knitting, and are far better than my previous needles (from a certain company in Germany). If I win these needles, I will happily give away those other needles. Thanks for the opportunity.

  42. I would love to win them! It would be an absolutely new feeling since its a completely different material the needles are made of (I normally use wooden ones). Plus the shops around here in Germany do not stock them yet. If they are as good as I I heard from other ravelry users I would knit most of my projects with them :)

  51. I got given the Acrylic Knit Pro set a couple of Christmas's ago by my husband. I have had to replace the 3.5mm tips as one of mine snapped. It would be really lovely for my knitting career (i'm 33 yrs) lol, and it would be so epic to receive the new Karbonz needle sets. I reckon they would superbly improve knitting and its pleasure.

  52. I'd love to own some karbonz needles because I think they're really cutting edge, and BLACK.

  64. Oh! I don't like metal/aluminiun needls but do like karbonz and wood needls. I have a pair of dpn and they are excelent for lace knitting. I would love to try single pointed needles.

  66. I've recently gotten back into knitting after many years of exclusively stitching and I'm surprised at all the new tools and yarns that are now available.

  76. Good quality needles really make knitting much more pleasurable. If I'm fighting the kink in a too stiff circular cord, struggling with blunt needles, needles that catch the yarn, that have a noticeable join or circulars that are too short in the hand - if I'm fighting those kinds of problems, I'm not loving what I'm making. And, if I'm going to spend money on great yarn and invest dozens or hundreds of hours into a project, I want to enjoy knitting it! Otherwise, what's the point? So I'd love to give these needles a go. They'd just make me happy!

  79. I really want to re-teach myself to knit. I crochet like a boss, but I learned to knit backwards (in the back loops) originally and it leads to difficulties when trying to follow a pattern. I think some fancy new needles would help that along, right?
