Sock Rockets, 40 inch
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.
Available in a 40" cable that is perfect for the magic loop method. HERE is a link to a You Tube video that demonstrates Magic Loop knitting.
HINT #1: The 2.75 mm needle is an inbetween 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 Turbo 40 inchers are fine for that purpose.
