A blond twist on our ever-popular Rainbow wood needles, Sunstruck's golden layers of laminated birch allow every stitch to be beautifully displayed on a sun-kissed finish. The smooth, burnished surface of Sunstruck needles is perfectly balanced with just the right amount of grip, which works wonders for working with slick fibers like mohair, silk, and angora. And with gradual, tapered points, smooth joins, and flexible cables, you'll love using Sunstruck needles for everything from lace to cables and textured projects.

Perfect for working with dark or variegated yarns, our Sunstruck needles have the same strength and stability that you know and love - all with a lighter wood finish that provides endless hours of enjoyable knitting.

This pouch has 9 needle pockets to hold your tips and two 4 1/2" pockets on the back of the snap case to conveniently store your cables. For expanded versatility, add additional sizes to your collection with our interchangeable needle tips and cables available separately.

This set is a great starter set for any knitter, beginner or experienced. We have assembled knitting needles and cable lengths in the most popular sizes and packaged them into a clear zipper top vinyl pouch. Each needle tip length is 4 3/4". The sizing of the Knit Picks interchangeable cables refer to the total length achieved when the needles tips are attached to the cables.

I waited to review these until I had used them a bit...14,000 stitches of garter lace later and I'm in love! The join is so smooth, and the needle tips have become like glass. The cable relaxed (with no help from me) after only a few rows. My yarn matches the purple cables, but is easy to see on the blond wood. Awesome product at a good price.

I bought these for my mom because she'd been begging for another set of interchangables - she already had a set from many years ago but needed more. I picked these up at a local yarn store and she LOVES them. The only thing I thought was odd was that the finish on the wood was a lot darker than it looks in the pictures - so much so that I kept wondering if they were the right ones, but she says that they are exactly the same as the other set she has from many years ago.

I love these needles! The wood is smooth as butter but still keeps my super slick yarn from sliding off. I plan to get the number 13 and 15 size tips soon! I have no complaints whatsoever.

I love the Harmony needles (the original dark rainbow) for my everyday projects. I was so optimistic these would be as great, but mine are nowhere near as sharp as the original Harmony woods I have, so they aren't used very much.

The positives: These needles are lovely to knit with, feel great in your hands and are neither too slippery on the wool or too sticky. They're really great. The negatives: In just a couple of months of use, the wooden needle has completely detached from its metal base (the metal base that then screws into the cable). I have had to glue all of my needles back together, which is disappointing considering how much I paid for these. I expected a better quality product. Verdict: 3 stars, average rating. When they don't come apart, they are lovely for knitting.

I love these needles. The wood feels perfect in my hands. The density feels really good, the finish is very smooth, and the points are nicely pointy. They're much smoother than the bamboo ones I'd been using. The tips do have sizes marked on them. They're etched on the metal, though, and a bit hard to see. The cables are nice and pliable, and I haven't had any issues with loosening mid-project. Just make sure to torque it on a little bit and they'll stay in place just fine. The only thing I'm not crazy about is the packaging. The vinyl is just a little too cumbersome for my taste.

Thank you for these needles. I have been using the birch needles for over a year, and this new lighter color is great for knitting with darker colored yarn. It makes seeing the stitches so much easier!

I love these needles! They are so beautiful, smooth, and have perfect points. The only thing that disappointed me was that none of the tips have sizes on them.

I tried Sunstruck circulars for socks,using darker yarn, in the winter evenings, when the light is poor. I had enjoyed my Harmony circular set, but was often straining to see my work. I enjoyed the Sunstruck needles so well in the small size that now I am happy to order the set of larger needles. Love the good wood feel. No tight gripping to keep my yarn from sliding off my needles--my hands don't hurt when I wake up in the morning!
