These are a lot less expensive than the similar ones sold on knitting sites, and cover a lot more space. In addition to that, they are 3/4" thick instead of 3/8" thick, and I am comfortable using them on top of my dining table, knowing the steam won't get through. Pinning into them is solid and secure.
I actually work at a sporting goods store and with my discount this set was still cheaper. It has all the components you'd need. Happy with purchase and I would recommend. However don't let the 12 piece fool you. It counts a stupid little picture I set of stretches. Literally pictures. No words or instructions on how to even do them. So useless.
