addi® Bamboo FlexiFlips
If you find yourself arguing with a porcupine when you knit socks on double pointed needles, your frustration is over! When working with addi® Bamboo FlexiFlips the other needles not in work hang below your knitting and away from your fingers.
Cast-on to an effortless new method of knitting socks, cuffs, hats, and many of other projects which are worked in the round, with the addi® FlexiFlips – now in BAMBOO! Developed by "CraSy" Sylvie Rasch in collaboration with addi® and made specifically for North America, these specially designed 24cm circulars (3.75" tips with 2" cord) rest comfortably in the hand, and act as flexible double pointed needles. Easy to use, stitches are simply distributed over two needles, and then knit with the third - resulting in only two needle changes per row. Patent Pending.
FlexiFlips Bamboo feature matching Natura points on both ends of the needle.
Overly versatile, FlexiFlips also make great cable needles. The weight of the tips drops this "cable needle" to the back or front of your knitting, away from your fingers. Then just slide those stitches to the tip and knit the second half of the cable. I used to use a double pointed needle for cables. I just couldn't get comfortable with a cable needle always getting in the way of my stitches. These solved my problem!

I ordered a couple of sets of these Addi bamboo flexiflips in the smaller sizes for baby hats. I prefer wood to metal for my knitting needles. It is worth the price to have 2 places to worry about dropping stitches instead of 4. Can't wait to use them for projects that have cable patterns.
from Angelika: That's a great idea to use these as cable needles!! Ingenious!
