Don’t look a gift Pony in the mouth…


I am so excited to share this post with you this week! It is a product review of some knitting needles which I was SO excited to receive. I spoke before when I knitted this hat that I really wished I had some interchangeable knitting needles. In fact, I think I would have avoided making it the wrong size if I had this set to take away with me. Instead of being asked if I would like to review these, they were at the top of my birthday wishlist and I actually asked if they would like to send me some… so you know that I really REALLY wanted to try these! I used them to make this yummy sweater!


This set is the Pony Colour interchangeable set with sizes 5-7mm included. As well as five sets of aluminium pins, it also comes with stoppers for the ends, a connector to link two cables and three cables in different sizes (60cm, 80cm, 100cm).


I used these to make an Ursa Sweater which has been on my to-make wishlist since the pattern was released a little while ago. I ordered some Sirdar Peru yarn in Blanket Blue off eBay and got 7 balls for a bargain £9 including postage! If you are on a budget and are prepared to sometimes wait for what you want, you can get some real bargains on there! I knew I wanted to make a navy blue Ursa to wear over my Metamorphic dresses and my Ellis dress.


The needles were a bit odd to use at first, I was previously using wooden circulars as they were the cheapest ones I could get and these metal ones are so slick in comparison! I specifically asked for metal ones as I like the feel of them but I had forgotten just how different they would be to use. At first, I kept sliding stitches off the needles as they are just so slick! Fortunately, I noticed every time and luckily managed to not drop any stitches! It only took a few rows before I got used to the new needles and when I did they made my knitting SO much faster – the yarn just slides off the needles and I really got into a good rhythm!


This sweater is made up in chunky yarn and is cropped so when combined with these slick needles it absolutely flew off them! I made it in under three weeks! I am a relative beginner and I really enjoyed learning half brioche stitch and felt like the pattern held my hand throughout. This was also my first time knitting a top-down sweater in the round and again I found the pattern easy to follow and enjoyed the making of it immensely.


I felt super cheeky actually going out there and asking for these but I felt like it would be so great for my readers to know I am always trying to review things that I love and genuinely am excited about. I cannot believe this gorgeous set is mine and I love that it comes in a cute little case for me to carry around with me.


Also – how cute is this little pony?!


I am actually excited for the weather to cool down so I can start getting some real wear out of this jumper – it goes with so much in my wardrobe I can see it getting worn loads and I enjoyed knitting it so much that I can’t wait to get something else cast on to my new needles!


If you are interested in these knitting pins and have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email and they will get back to you!
