If you are following me on social media, you already know that I have rediscovered knitting and started to knit some stuff for myself. 😊
I have learnt to knit when I was 12 years old and my mum showed me the basics:
- How to cast on
- Knit and purl stitches
- Increasing and decreasing
- Bind off
Knitting did not become a hobby at that time but it was a nice experiment. I think I was too young to get into it as I had many other hobbies and interests.
As I became a crochet designer, I started to see so many beautiful knitted projects on social media, especially on Instagram so I decided to start knitting again!
With determination in my head, I picked up my knitting needles 20 years after my first try and started this super hobby once again!
KnitPro needles are well known for their great quality and beauty so when the company reached out and asked me to try their newest product, the J’adore Gift Set, I was over the moon!
It took a few weeks to get the product but I wasn’t disappointed!
The J’adore Gift Set is an absolutely gorgeous knitting needle set, a perfect gift for anyone who loves knitting!
The set comes with a luxuriously soft velvet bag that will protect the needles and keep them neatly stored along with a variety of useful accessories.
Cubics Interchangeable Needle Sizes 4.0, 4.5, 5.0, 5.5, 6.0 & 8.0mm in Blooming Lavender colour with matt gold connectors. Needle sizes are laser printed on the metal connectors.
- 3 memory-free stainless-steel cables in length of 60, 80 & 100cm,
- 4 end caps;
- 2 cable keys;
- One set of cable connectors
- 20 amour metal stitch markers.
Here’s a little unboxing video which I made especially for you to enjoy and see all the contents more closely:
As soon as I opened the box, checked all the contents and finished staring at it while admiring its gorgeousness, I started a few knitting projects to try those needles in action.
First, I was worried about the shape of the needles as they are cubics and not the ‘traditional’ round ones but that was totally unnecessary! The cubic shape is great, it really helped my stitches to look more even and the stitch definition I got is stunning!
The needles are super light and soft to touch, they are very easy to assemble so it takes only a moment to set up, before you start your project.
I started with an easy stitch pattern, just to get the hang of it, before I carry on with some more complicated projects.
I decided to knit a twisted headband for myself, which is an easy enough project for beginners like me. It was a dream to work with the needles, I was able to knit without serious effort and I kept my tension easily.
You can see that the finished item looks beautiful and the stitch definition is great!
After completing my first project, using my new needles, I was brave enough to start a cardigan for my daughter.
This is my first time reading a knitting pattern but with great needles like this, I am sure that I will succeed!
The cardigan is still in progress but I will keep you updated and show you the outcome once it’s finished!
I definitely recommend this needle set for anyone who loves knitting or just starting to play with the idea of investing in a more professional set!
It’s not just beautiful but useful too with great accessiories. The velvet pouch doesn’t take up a lot of space so you can easily store it, even if you have limited space.
