  1. Hi there, I am using a second set of Knitters Pride Nova Platina Deluxe interchangeable circular needles both purchased from Amazon. I received the second set as I had trouble with yarn catching and complained to Amazon. Both sets have plastic bulges at ends of cords attaching to the metal. If the joins are supposed to be smooth these are definately not, and wondered is this a flaw. I am about to send both sets back. Regards,

    • Hi Fran. That’s not good to hear. Yes, it sounds like a flaw with the manufacturing. I hope you got replacements sorted as they are usually a good set of metal interchangeables. Cheers Jodie
