One of the great things about July/August is all the new products that arrive at the store from TNNA. Several years ago I picked up some straight size 8 needles by Kollage. This are unique because they are square and are supposed to be better for your hands. Well, they came out with a line of "metal" square circulars. I picked up a size 4 24" to use on some baby items and maybe my Tokyo Topper. What a great little product! If you are someone who fits the cords of other circs, you will love these needles. The cord is a sort of Teflon material that doesn't curl or get twisted.
