Choosing the right magic wands!

Knitting needles and crochet hooks come in all sorts of sizes, material and types!

Yes, they all do the job they are intended for, but they all vary – just as we do!

It really is important to choose the right size and type for your project – not all hooks and needles are created equally!

Knitting Needles

Pony Classic – a wide range of traditional, everyday needles and hooks

Pony Pearl – a range of plastic needles, for those who prefer them.

Bamboo – perfect for those of you that find the traditional too inflexible and also excellent for those of you with arthritis or carpal tunnel, not to mention good for on flights

KnitPro Zing – Metal knitting needles that come in gorgeous colours according to the size (mid price range but the favourites of the girls@thespottedsheep!)

KnitPro Symfonie – beautiful wooden needles that look like works of art and are smooth and easy to use.

KnitPro Karbonz – if you have a golfer in your life you will know about carbon graphite golf clubs – light, durable & slightly flexible. These are exceptionally light, and perfect for anyone with arthritis as you still have a wonderful tip without the stiffness or weight.

KnitPro Cubics – love these square needles! Especially useful for knitters whose tension is quite loose as these needles help to bring the tension into line

Lykke Needles  Lykke is the Norwegian word for happiness, and it shows in these wooden needles!  They are not made with mechanised automation, rather they rely on skilled workers who handcraft and assemble them in Nepal. They are available in straights and fixed circulars, though supply can be erratic due to them being handmade and highly desirable!

We also sell Children’s Needles and a selection of needles in short lengths which are ideal for small projects!

Crochet Hooks! 

Pony – We have the ‘classic, traditional’ hooks, like we remember our Granny using, which are still popular today, and extremely reasonable in price.  Some of this style are also available by Knit Pro.

Pony Easy Grip hooks, which have a rounded handle, so making it easy to grip!

KnitPro Waves – ergonomically designed crochet hooks that feel more natural to work with + plus each size is a different funky colour!  Our most popular selling hook.

Clover Amour Crochet hooks that are shaped so they are easy to cradle in your fingers, with a smooth tip and excellent hook, allowing you to glide through your project, without tiring.

Clover Soft Touch Crochet hooks are also available in store, and offer a more reasonably priced alternative to the Amour range.

Pony Bamboo hooks are also available, especially useful for anyone who is flying and concerned they may literally get cabin fever without their crochet, just in case they have their hook taken off them!   In our experience, that’s a more dangerous thing to do than leave us with them!!!
