Not just for knitting in the round, Ginger interchangeable needles are great for all projects. Excellent for travel (and generally ok on planes), for convenient swapping of needle size or for borrowing for another project when you can't resist casting on again. And of course, the ultimate for knitting in the round. Needle tips screw on and off cables to create a smooth join. Tips are made of timber. These tips are shorter and perfect for small circumference circular projects.
