Nirvana Needles Arts Ebony Sock Needle Set Giveaway!

Look at this gorgeous set of ebony sock needles from Nirvana Needle Arts! We reviewed this set in the current issue of Knitty and thought they knit as wonderfully as they look.

Here’s what Carla had to say about them:

Knitting with wooden needles makes my heart sing. They are warm in my hands from the moment I pick them up. I may have squealed when I saw this set (which includes 5 double pointed needles in US sizes 1, 2, and 3). The case is made from happy, flowery fabric and lined in bright red (there are several different fabrics to choose from). There’s a flap to keep the needles in place and an elastic band to ensure nothing falls out and plenty of space to add to the collection.

So, they’re gorgeous…but how do they work? Beautifully. Aside from the warmth, they have just enough give to keep my hands from getting tired. I can imagine after years of use, they will fit in my hands with a slight curve to them. No splitty needle tips here either. I raced along on a sock with no split stitches or half-caught yarn. The soft finish slowed me down a bit, but again, after years of use, they will be shiny, a little slicker, and among my favorite needles.

    My goodness, I’m sold. These seem like they’re very high quality and would be a pleasure to work with. And who couldn’t use more pleasure in life???

  3. Barbara S

    They look fabulous. I was wondering how ebony needles would be to work with. Would love to win them. Thanks for the opportunity.

    These needles sound wonderful! I recently tried my first set of high quality wooden circular needles and am thrilled with how nice they are to knit with. I want to replace all of my metal and bamboo needles with wooden needles. This would be a great start at replacing the needles I use for socks and baby items.

    I would love this needle set!
    Making socks is one of my favorite things, and ebony wood needles are the best! Warm and smooth, beautiful and comfortable- they make me happy!

    These look wonderful and not too slippery. But, not for socks! — I would knit fingerless mittens.

    I love knitting with wooden needles. They are so much more comfortable to use than metal.

    These are beautiful. Does anyone know if they’re using sustainably sourced ebony?

    I love the feel and the flexibility of wooden straight needles. I would love to try wooden double points. Thank you for doing this givaway.
