First, the disclaimer: I wasn't solicited or paid to write this entry - I just really like Hiya-Hiya needles. When I was at the TNNA show in Columbus last June, I did get a free pair of #2 circs from the nice people in the Hiya-Hiya booth, however - otherwise, I just want to share the love!
I've been using Hiya-Hiyas for years - when I worked at Lorna's, we frequently would pool our collective resources to order a big, magical box of needles. That was when I first got hooked on them - for one thing, you can't beat the price. And for the money, they perform well - to be honest, I like them better than a lot of those "expensive" brands. Not only that, but each package of needles usually comes with a prize - a darning needle, a stitch marker, a blocking pin. It's sort of like Cracker Jack, but with knitting needles!
Knit Picks Options set), I'd be all over these cute new needle sets Hiya-Hiya just came out with.
It's nice to know that you don't have to part with too much of your hard-earned cash just to get quality crafting supplies - leaving more room in the budget for yarn! Who can't get behind that?!
(That's especially great news for me - Yarn Con is just around the corner!)
