Things I bought on the internet part three

Remember when I tried to knit  a toe up sock on 2.5mm needles and it ended up too big and I ripped it? No, I didn't really expect you to. Anyway, I decided I needed some 2.25 mm circulars, since all the toe up socks I have knit on two circulars have come out a little too big. 

I was thinking about buying some more Karbonz,  but I noticed that Knitpro now makes an aluminum needle called Zing that look like the Signature needles. They are half the price of the Karbonz, so I thought I'd try them.


My thoughts are that they are ok, but only ok. They have a sort of rounded tip, and I usually prefer a sharper tip. I'll know more after I knit a pair of socks with them (which I am about to cast on) but at the moment I'm thinking I may still buy a sock set in the Karbonz.

I bought these from Purlwise and Mark provided me with his usual efficient service. I love that online shop a leeetle too much.
