I love my HiyaHiya sharp knitting needle set. But they only go up to US 15 size. I wanted to do a project with jumbo yarn and huge needles but didn't know what to buy. Took a chance on a brand I had never tried: ChiaoGoo. Normally I'm weary of any knitting needles or crochet needles made out of wood. Mostly because they aren't usually as slick and the tips aren't sharp enough like my Hiya's.
Bought the US 35 ChiaoGoo fixed circular 40 inch set of knitting needles. Blown away. Super jumbo yarn with large needles always provide a bit more of a challenge, if nothing else but to navigate everything as well as keeping the yarn from twisting up. The needles were slick, they weren't short, thankfully, but instead 7 inches long (from the join between the cord and the metal part of the needle to the tip of the needle). Yarn doesn't catch at all and the needles are like butter when knitting. And one thing I didn't even know what possible and I adore? The thick/wide plastic cord! No issues at all with twisting nor fighting it to keep things straight. Unless you've done a project as big as a blanket before, you don't realize how much normal cords (which are thin) can be a major issue, time waster, and huge frustration. The cord alone has me in love with them.
Long story short:
Needles are slick
Needles themselves are an excellent length
Cord is fantastic, thicker, and doesn't keep trying to coil up (fyi - the cord is light due to it's a hallow inside and it's not stiff plastic).
Now? I'm going to build up my ChiagoGoo large needle collection. Two of each size, one with 40 inch cord and one with 60 inch cord for needle sizes US 17, US 19, US 35, US 50.
