At Little Houndales Knits we stock a vast selection of knitting needles, crochet hooks and more from top brands like KnitPro, ArtViva, Lantern Moon, HiyaHiya and Addi. We stock interchangeable needles, fixed circular needles, double pointed needles, and straight needles in a varity of lengths and options.
We do stock the complete range from KnitPro, if you can't find it on the website please don't hesitate to get in touch as we most likely have it. KnitPro have increased their range dramatically over the last couple of years and their range now not only includes the reknowned and loved Symfonie rainbow coloured laminated birch and the ever popular super speedy Nova metals, but a fabulous range of carbon fibre needles with nickel plated tips known as 'Karbonz', and now a range of Bamboo's for those who fell in love with bamboo needles when they were the only alternative available to aluminium several years ago. KnitPro also do a Basic's range and an Aluminium range, we don't carry all of these in stock as they tend not to be as popular but do feel free to get in touch for a price as we can order them.
ArtViva knitting needles are the fun and quirky option with their brightly coloured polka dot tops. They are hand crafted in Tasmania from Tasmanian oak and have hand painted tops. We stock all colours and sizes in the 30cm length and 20cm 'Pocket Rocket' length and a selection of colours in the longer 38cm, again, if you can't find it on the website please get in touch. We can specially order ArtViva in your specific sizes and colours, they take about 4 weeks to be made and travel from Tasmania. For the complete range of ArtViva please take a look at their website www.artviva.biz.
HiyaHiya is a range that we have recently introduced, currently we only stock the interchangeable sets. What I love about HiyaHiya is the beautiful silk cases and the unsurpassed precision joints!
Addi are a well known brand and produce a range of the shortest fixed circular needles available, ideal for working on dolls clothes or for using two at a time for socks. The Addi lace range have a lovely smooth join to allow your delicate lace knitting to pass over with no snags what so ever and the satinised surface helps prevent your stitches flying off! The Addi Click set comes in a fabulous pink vinyl case and contains a 'life line' which is so easy to use. A life line is when a strand of contrasting yarn is threaded through the stitches as they are knitted and means that should you need to pull back your knitting, when you pull back to the life line your stitches won't run down!
