Read what knitters have to say about Signature Needles.
I just wanted to say thank you for my custom length circular that I ordered. It arrived today and is perfect in every way. My knitting friends were all astonished that I was able to order a custom made needle. Your brand is not known over here in Australia (unless you are a member of Ravelry). So thank you again for your exemplary service and product.
These needles are the Cat's Meow! I have a full set of the 10" straights and the 24" circulars. I always forget just how wonderful they are until I pick them up and start knitting. A dream to work with!
Your needles are so wonderful that I sold my Addi Turbos at a garage sale and used the money to buy one set of circulars in every size in 47" chords. The stiletto points can't be beat and I won't knit socks without my wonderful double points in sizes 1 and 1 1/2! Now I am saving to be able to buy a set of circs in all sizes in 24" chords. Until you have knit with these little beauties, you don't know what you are missing. Well worth the price (and I love having them monogrammed!)
I just bought a set of 2.50 double points and a size 7 circular and I cannot say enough good things about them. They have a certain feel to them that is hard to explain other than to say they feel like they were made to order just for my hands! The stilettos are an absolute joy to use for not only straight knit and purl stitches but the knit 3 tog. and sssk stitches for my lace baby blanket!
The beautiful jewel colors and lovely tips that almost sparkle as your stitches fly off the needles are a major plus as well. The fact that they are very smooth but not so slick that I have the constant worry of losing stitches is a big deal for me as well. They are pretty expensive, but I will be saving up to get more, because even though I'm not a professional knitter by trade, I feel I deserve to use the tools of professionals for everything I knit for my family. Bottom line is..they are simply beautiful to look at and wonderful to use and the best needles I've used in my forty-two years as a knitter. Thank you Signature Needle Arts--YOU ROCK! :)

I have quite a few of the fabulous Signature Circular Needles! They truly are the "Cadillac" of knitting needles. The tip is a dream to execute any kind of knitting, but lace projects are a breeze with these gems! I had the unfortunate luck to have a needle break and Signature contacted me immediately after informing her of the breakage. They promptly offered to replace it! I never expected it, but am so pleased with the needles. I was prepared to buy another, but am elated to get a replacement! I am seriously considering a complete set!!

Stiletto point needles RULE! Just received my 1st pair of single points and they are perfect for knitting 2 tog., knitting into the front and back of a stitch, and actually just about everything. I want them ALL. No seriously, ALL.

Hi, it's me again - Renee, in Plano, TX. I have been deliriously happy clicking along with my Singulars since April 2012. I've made two scarfs, 2 Quant headbands (see knitty.com for the pattern) and am plugging away on my Tern and Angostura vests.
So far I've used my 4's, 6's and 8 circulars with gusto and some would even say an almost reckless abandon. This is because using your tools is a delight to the senses. Your needles are amazingly lightweight and yet they somehow have a pleasing heft. I don't really understand it - to me it is just magic. And hello, they come in those simply gorgeous colors. But WAIT - there's more. There's that super bendy, soft cord that joins the needles just so.
Ahhh, my Stilettos how I love thee. Of course, I am busy trying to save up for my next set of Stilettos. Hopefully Christmas 2012.

I have just received my first set of of double pointed needles. I had started a pair of socks on some multicoloured wooden needles and it was going alright. But, now I am using the signature needles and stitches are even, I am knitting at my old speed, and the sock looks great with the needles in. What am I going to do.... I need to replace all my old needles! How can I knit with anything else now?

I love to knit lace. My newest quest is to learn to knit a Haapsalu shawl. But found that making all those "nupps"(7stitches knit into one stitch, then on the next row all 7 knit together) was so very hard! It was downright impossible to knit those seven stitches together, and there are hundreds in a completed shawl. I gave up. Then I discovered Signature Needle Stilettos. Omigoodness! As soon as they arrived, I cast on for a swatch of the Haapsalu pattern I had tried so many times... and was amazed at the difference. I could knit those nupps quickly and easily with no problems at all. The needles feel wonderful as you use them. They are a bit too pricey for me to get all the sizes, but are worth the investment to succeed on a project that needs those incredibly pointy tips.

I saw your add in a knitting magazine and had to try them. I've ordered most of the double points,and now I'm getting some circular needles engraved. My goal is to have all the sizes in DPN and Circulars. Do you have plans to do some 16" circular needles?
OMG, I took the plunge and went right over the deep end and I am ever so delighted that I did. I purchased the 8 needle circular set which I customized all to pieces. I went with stilletto points all around, doubled up on the needles I use the most (6, 7, and 8) and since I knit with mostly sock to light worsted I also added size 4 & 5 needles to complete my set.
I waited on pins and needles and still got my set way sooner than I expected - 4 days. What makes that real impressive is that the needles arrived in the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex right when we were having MAJOR tornado activity. At last count, we were up to 12 confirmed tornadoes - crazy, huh. So, I fully expected there to be some major shipping delays - but there weren't! *yay
Man, talk about Christmas in April. The lovely colors, the super slinky cable, the absolute perfection of the join - man, I couldn't wait to start using the needles. So, I promptly transferred 3 current projects from the needles I was using to my lovely new Signature circs. So far, I can attest that the size 4, 6 and 7 knit even better than they look and that's saying something.
I only have one problem now - saving up for my next set of Signature circs and deciding on the composition of my next set of beauties.
So yep, you guys are pricey but worth every penny. I take my set with me and, enabling knitter that I am, I get unsuspecting knitters to "just try a few stitches, just to see how it feels. . . " So far, I have 3 people who are now saving up for their very own set. Keep in mind, I just got my needles yesterday.

Oh my gosh, I just got my first Signature needles and I love them!!! I bought the circular ones, and I can't wait for them to be released in smaller (sock knitting) sizes! Magic Loop here I come!
I was looking for pointy knitting needles as I am a tight knitter which makes knitting 2 or more stitches together difficult. I found Signature Needle Art by surfing the web. At first I was taken aback as they are expensive (for me they are) but then I thought well, if they are pointy and I like them they'll be a worthwhile INVESTMENT so I took the plunge and order 2 sets of straight needles. There was a little problem in shipping but Vicki took care of it fast and friendly. Well I have my needles and I love them, the stilettos are SO POINTY!!!! Knitting 2 or more stitches together is so much easier now and they are pretty to boot, I especially like the spiral caps. So guess what? I purchased 4 circular needles! Love them, the cords on the circulars are pliable and strong, and there is a smooth change from the needle to the cord (hope that makes sense). Eventually I will try the double points (when I save some money to purchase more they are an INVESTMENT lol)
I was intrigued by the advertising I saw in knitting magazines, and finally decided I had to try some. So I ordered a size 6 circular with the stiletto point. I was hoping I wouldn't like them too much so I wouldn't have to spend the money to buy more, but alas: They were wonderful. I mostly knit lace, and the stiletto point are by far the best I've used. I also love the cables - not too stiff and not too flexible. I am slowly acquiring more. Love, love, love them.

They have a wonderful smooth feel. They are as close to a Rolls as I will ever get . Slowly acquiring more as budget allows.

Because your ad in a magazine was so beautiful, I had to investigate your website. I just knew the needles would be as beautiful so I've ordered some dp, circular and straight needles and I won't rest until I have them in all the sizes I use regularly. I am the envy of my knitting class. Even the instructor comes to see if she can help so she can use my Signature needles. They are the absolute best needles I have ever used. To me they are a work of art worthy of being in a gallery. Also great that they are made in Wisconsin but enjoy world renown. Thank you!

I am hooked on my Signature knitting needles. I purchased 3 pairs of the stilletto circulars...they are the best...have the addi lace circulars as well as the addi lace clickets...no comparison...i love my signatures...the cable is so flexible; the join to the needle is so smooth. I will come back and order more. An excellent product and I recommend them highly. You won't be sorry. Thank you

I LOVE MY STILETTOS!!! I knit all the time, lots of different projects. If I don't have the proper Signature Needle for a project, I'm not as excited to begin it. Since using Signature Needles, I find it hard to use other needles. My wish list would consist of all sizes and styles, Stiletto only!!. My dream is to own them all one day.

I have knitted a lot of socks in my day but only on a size 5 DPN...those smaller needles were not for me...took way to long for one pair of socks. At a knitter's retreat I discovered the Signature Arts needles and was amazed how great they felt in the hand and how fast the knitting was going. I ordered my standard size 5 and whipped out three pair in no time at all!!! I am now going to give the smaller needles a try and venture into real sock yarn!!! Love the needles!!!
SNA double points are the BEST needles ever. I previously knitted all of my socks on Lantern Moon sock sticks and thought that I would never knit on anything else. Then a friend gave me a pair of SNA double points and I was hooked. The are so wonderful to work with. I recently picked an old pair of sock sticks (since I didn't have SNA #2's) and after a few rows I stopped and will be ordering a set of 2's today! There is nothing better than working with SNA double points.
Bought my first pair of sz 1 10" for a lace project and all I can say is thank you!!! I have been moving slowly on the project because I was disappointed with the needles I had been using, now it is full speed ahead and I am checking out everything else SNA makes. I recommend them to everyone!!
I purchased a pair of US 9 40" circs at Rhinebeck and absolutely love them! Today I ordered a pair of 2.75mm dpns and can't wait until they get here. I've knitted with almost every known brand of needles. Signature by far are the best. I know what Santa is bringing me this year

As a sock designer, I had to have a set of size 1 Signature DPs. What I would love is a set of size 0s too. Yeah, I'm a Stiletto gal! The points are perfect! And I do believe I am actually knitting faster, even though I have used metal DPs in the past. Signature needles' metal finish is superb. I'm dumping the rest of my needles because I will never use anything other than Signature again.

I was very lucky to receive such a lovely birthday gift of a pair of your needles from my daughters. How they found such a fantastic product I will never know. Thank you very much Signature.
I received my order of circulars needles and I knew the second I put them in my hands I had something special. These are the finest needles I have ever worked with and I have been knitting for over 50 years. I will be ordering more sizes as I can afford them. Thank you for making such a fine product.
Wonderful needles, hoping to see US#1 40" for Magic Loop socks.
I bought my first set of Signature needles at Serial Knitters in Kirkland Washington, size 7 circulars, a few months ago. Since then I have tried knitting only projects that call for a size 7. I cannot believe the quality, honestly they make every needle I have ever used prior pale by comparison, including Addi Turbo Lace needles. The weight is perfect, the tips are exquisite, the joins are perfection, the cable is flexible and lightweight and I love how the cable spins at the join. If I could afford it I would buy every size right now. It sure would be nice if they made a set. I can't wait until I can buy another set!!!! LOVE THESE NEEDLES.

I started knitting socks a year ago on Knitpicks Harmony wood DPNs. Really liked them but decided to try the Signature Arts needles. Love them! Recently tried using the wood needles again (had jury duty & was afraid they wouldn't let me take the metal ones in) and I couldn't knit very well with them. I'm so spoiled now to how smooth & easy it is to knit with the Signature ones, I ripped it out and started over with the Signatures. I will only knit with them from now on. Excellent product! Thank you!

I am now hooked on SNAs and find it very hard to use other needles. I am in agreement with another customer about waiting to do socks until the 2 and 1 circulars come out. I look for sock patterns using size three. I really love them. Can't wait until my B-Day to buy 2 more circulars, then I would have all the circulars except 1&2. Please hurry and make them..... :-)
Janet | Geneva, IL
I cannot say enough good things about Signature Stiletto needles. Without them, I am quite sure that I would still be struggling with "purl two together through the back loops" stitches on my current project. These needles are an absolute joy to knit with, and I had tried every other 'top' brand out there. Nothing compares. Not even close.
I just received my first pair of these circular needles, and they will not be the last! I cannot say enough about the wonderful construction of these needles; I have just about all brands, and these are quickly the number 1!

I have today submitted yet another order for Signature Needles. After many years of knitting with a wide assortment of needles, I am thrilled to be using Signature Needles. Although I have accumulated most sizes of needles in my stash, I am using new knitting projects as an excuse to buy new Sig's! It is hard to go back to the old needles after using yours. I now have tried your dpn's, straights and circular needles. Your "memory resistant cable" is the best ever.
Mary | Arizona
I saw Signature needles for some time in magazines, but actually got to see them in person at the 2010 Stitches West Conference. The circular needles were just being introduced. I immediately bought a pair of circulars and two pairs of straight needles. They are the most beautiful needles I have ever used. Since then I have purchased every circular as they become available and some in several lengths. I teach knitting and always use my Signature needles in class and many of my students have ordered them as well. Thank you so much for a wonderful product.
I listen to the Knit Girllls podcast. They did a special review of Signature Needles. Their glowing report convinced me. Yesterday I received my first set of DPNs along with a US8 circ from you. They are so perfect that today I ordered another size of DPNs plus the new US9 circ. I intend to order another size of each with every paycheck until I have them all. Treat your podcasters well. We listen to what they say.
Janet B said: I ordered the set of straight needles and absolutely love them. I also am anxious for the size 1 and 2 in circular for the socks. In fact, I may wait to knit anymore socks until they come out. These needles are so functional and feel so luxurious in your hands.
You have the quickest mailing I have ever received they went out the same day I ordered. I ordered the first set last week after knitting with them for about an hour I knew they were the perfect needle so I ordered 6 more sets. what a wonderful,beautiful product you have created. I am going to spend many hours enjoying using them!I see more in my future! thank you for a great needle and wonderful service!
