5 Reasons to Invest in Mindful Knitting Needles Set

A knitting needle set is an investment in your craft. And, when it’s from the Mindful Collection, you not only get the benefits of multiple needle sizes, cable lengths and accessories, all at your fingertips, you get a thoughtfully designed knit meant for mindful knitting. If you’re a knitter on a budget, you’d be right to research about a needle set before you hit your favourite yarn shop. The Mindful Collection offers needle sets in options of fixed circulars, interchangeable circulars as well as double-pointed needles. An exceptional feature is that each stainless steel knitting needle has an inspirational word imprinted on the tip that makes the knitter focus on the meditative aspects of the craft.

Investing in needle sets has a lot of benefits. You get endless opportunities for your projects. For most avid knitters, interchangeable needles are a smart investment. With multiple needle tips and cables, the set offers many needle combinations of sizes and lengths. Here are 5 reasons why.

1. Convenience 

Having multiple needle sizes is convenient for many reasons. You may be working on a project or just making a swatch according to the pattern instructions but then you need a size smaller or bigger to get a gauge. With a needle set, you can be confident that you’re properly equipped for just about any project.

If you own a set of interchangeable needles you can switch the needle tips and cord lengths according to the need of the project. You can easily knit in the round as well as back in forth with circular knitting needles. If you are a knitter with many WIPs, you will have additional cables to hold projects at the ready secured with needle stoppers put on the cord ends.

2. Storage 

A big collection of knitting needles can quickly turn into a mess. Having needle sets means having organized storage. A needle case is compact, organized and often attractive. You will have pockets and sections for needle tips, cables and even accessories. This is also a convenient option for taking your knitting needles and even your project for a weekend getaway or a holiday.

3. Versatility 

The Mindful needle sets are versatile. With different sizes and accessories, you can be prepared for all kinds of knitting projects. In case you have an interchangeable needle set, you can easily knit a pair of socks to a wide blanket. The circular needles have extra accessories to attach cables and sometimes two or more extra lengths.

4. Portability 

Similar to organized storage, sets are wonderful for their portability. Pack the set in the corner of your tote to take it to the beach or park or even your regular commute. For holiday knitting, just tuck it into the suitcase. Also when you need to test some hand spun or hand dyed wool at the market or attend a Yarn Fest, the needle set can be carried to the event to give the yarn a try. Simply cast on and make a few stitches and you’ll know a lot about the yarn.

3. Cost 

Individual knitting needles, depending on brand, material, and size can cost more. When you have needle sets you have multiple combinations that work for various projects. With an interchangeable needle set, say if you have 5 needle pairs and 5 cables you can create at least 25 different combinations of length and needle size. On average, a set of interchangeable needles will cost less than what would be needed to buy each needle separately. Also, there are a few needle sizes and lengths that you would require only for a few projects and having them in a set will save you from buying individual sizes.

This is all we have to convince you to invest in a knitting needle set. Your reasons may be different than ours but ultimately your craft will benefit.
