These are my favorite circular needles RED LACE from ChiaoGoo. What makes the needles so special is that the tips are sharp and made of surgical stainless steel. I also like that the size of the stitches has been laser engraved which means it won't wear off. The transition between the needle and the attachment to the cable is really fine and here the yarn flows so nicely. The cables are made of steel wire and covered with twisted red nylon. These cables return to their shape after you have finished knitting. The whole thing is that they are light and durable.
