I wanted to try these huge knitting sticks out because of the Lion Brand throw pattern that stated that you could make an entire throw in less that 6 hours. And.. It’s true! The first thing I made with these sticks was a throw that I made in less than one day. I don’t even think I spent a whole 6 hours, maybe only 4.5 to 5 hours knitting. Cutting and attaching the fringe did take it a little long, but total it was only a 6 hour project! (you can find the throw pattern on the lion brand site) Pros:can create things quicklysticks are inexpensivesticks are easy to usesticks are not heavy Cons:to make decent looking throws or scarves, most of the time, you have to knit with at least 2-4 strands held together, which can make the project pretty expensive. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 14 of 14 people found the following review helpful Knitting any faster would require a machine!, March 27, 2008 By Anania “Nadine” (Phoenix, AZ, United States) – I love these needles! While they are a little awkward at first, the speedstix are easy to handle and allows you to produce garments really fast, perfect for that last minute gift or a new decorative afghan. Made of plastic, they are not heavy. Lionbrand.com has several free patterns designed especially for these special needles. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 12 of 13 people found the following review helpful Great quick projects, July 7, 2007 By Barbie “Tribes Ministries: Get in the river.” (Santa Barbara, CA/ Marseille, France) – Though these are FAR from my favorite to knit with, the size of the speed stix makes it possible to make throws in six hours and scarves in two, which is REALLY practical for people who, like me, rely on handknit items for income 🙂 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
