These 9" circular needles are great for sock knitting.
ChiaoGoo's Knit RED line of surgical-grade, stainless steel circular knitting needles have a smooth, satin-sheen finish and memory-free, multi-strand, steel cable coated with red nylon allowing yarn to slide right over. Needle size is permanently laser imprinted on each circular. Precisely machined tips and joins are just spectacular!
These 9" needles are prefect for knitting small circumference projects, such as socks or sleeves. The smaller circumference of the needle can be a little tricky if you haven't used them before, but with a little practice you will be flying along. To use, hold the needles loosely and knit as you normally would. Resist a death grip on the needles! Knit an inch or two to familiarize yourself with the smaller grip, and off you go.
