Chiaogoo knitting needles are the perfect light needles for your projects. The red cables are slightly weighted and have very smooth joints. This means that it has no memory and it doesn't get intertwined or twisted while you knit. The tips are pointed enough for your lace and non-lace works and the needle size is imprinted in the stainless steel tip. I love to knit socks with them. They are very light and they give me no pain in my wrists while working on magic loop.
