Knitters Pride, the fine folks who brought knitters the Karbonz interchangeable knitting needles and the Dreamz have just come out with a new, stronger set of acrylic interchangeable knitting needles. You may recall that Knitters Pride also produces the Trendz,which are a low-cost acrylic set of interchangeable knitting needles.
