Knitter's Pride needles and hooks.

This week, we got three boxes brimming with nothing but knitting needles and crochet hooks. We had been missing some sizes in the Crystal Palace bamboo single and double pointed needles, so one box was dedicated to those. The other two were all Knitter's Pride, a relatively new line that seems to have become a favorite.

The Knitter's Pride Dreamz circular needles have been quite popular since their initial arrival back in October. We can't seem to keep all the various sizes in all four lengths in stock, hence this week's two boxes worth.

The Dreamz interchangeable circular sets have sold out over and over again, so this time we wised up and ordered twice as many. We also have extra cords in 16", 24", 32", and 40" which are compatible with the Dreamz interchangeable set.

We now have the Knitter's Pride Symfonie Rose interchangeable needles as well, a beautiful set in a sturdy case like a jewelry box.

Knitter's Pride also makes square needles, in single and double points as well as circulars, and we're proud to boast all three. The square needles are ergonomically designed, making them easier to hold and easier on your hands. The double points have been particularly well-received by those who try them. Many knitters have skeptically purchased square needles only to return later singing their praises. Give them a try, and let us know what you think.

We made sure to get something for the crocheters, too: Dreamz hooks in a wide range of sizes, as well as afghan hooks that can be attached to the single cords for Tunisian crochet.

Whatever needles or hooks you're seeking, we hope you can find them here. We make an effort to keep a variety of knitting and crochet tools in stock in a variety of sizes. See you at the shop!


  1. Hello Julia,

    I had the pleasure of visiting the shop on Sunday, what a treat! Your needle collection is extensive/great and the Dreamz...are beautiful to say the least! Anne was so kind and helpful, I will definitely be back soon...still pondering over whether I want to get the Dreamz set or go with the cubics. I am test knitting now will be back soon to make my needle purchase. I love the HYS Blog, keep up the good work. I look forward to new post! --Leslie (Blakpurl)

  2. Thanks for sharing! We're thrilled that you - and your customers - are loving our needles!

  3. Are these the same needles that are called KnitPro in Europe? They seem to look familiar!
