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.

    I would love these needles. They are described so well, sounds so delicious that I can already feel them in my hands.

    I love wooden needles too, and after using magic loop for car- based sock knitting (after my daughter got tired of fishing around for dropped needles), I know I prefer dons.

    They sound lovely. I like dpn’s best for socks but haven’t tried ebony before- as someone else said, I might have to buy the set unless of course I am lucky here. Thanks for the chance.

    Wooden needles are my favorite. I almost never drop stitches off of bamboo.

    OMG, these sound awesome. I love 6″ do needles for socks! Just the right length to not loose stich off the “back end”!! Thanks for this giveaway.

  7. Lisa Giovanetti

    i would enjoy using these beautiful needles as i am almost constantly working on new socks!!! yum.

  8. Madame Hardy

    I do love the look and feel of ebony. I hope Nirvana was careful to buy sustainably sourced species.

  9. Jenny

    Those are simply lovely! Maybe I could actually make more than 1 1/2 pair next try.

    It is so wonderful to knit with beautiful needles…just makes knitting fun even more fun!

    ooh, so pretty and happy.
    Love wooden needles. The color of the wood looks like it would be great contrast for light color yarn and seeing stitches on the needles.

    Those are beautiful needles. And the case is pretty too. When I was a new sock knitter I kept breaking my wooden needles. It would be fun to try wooden needles again and perhaps get my sock knitting mojo back.

  13. Geraldine B

    Those needles look amazing. I think they’d be great to work with and I would certainly love to own them!

    These are so pretty! It would be so cool to win them. I need to buy wooden needles for a international flight. I’ve read in my airlines rules that wooden needles are allowed but metal ones are not!

  15. Nancy Gossett

    These are absolutely gorgeous, and I love working with wooden needles! Love love love

    Like you have to ask! Who *doesn’t* need a set of ebony sock needles?! These look stunning and sound amazing.
