Those are very cool looking, although I'm curious about how well your stitches will slide back onto the needle after being on the wire (or whatever that is)...mine always tend to get pulled kinda tight while they're slipping along the wire and then if I didn't have a smooth transition onto the needle it could be a problem. Have you tried them out yet?

I love them!!!
I wish i can make ons because here in Spain circular needles are sooo expensive (like 5 or more euros) and it's dificult to find little ones.
Be happy!
