Interchangeable needles?

Yes, obviously i am in the market for new needles, LOL.

I am lookgin at the interchangeable systems, as i am alwasy using different weights of yarn!!! and i have a very small stash of needles, so i may as well get interchangeables now instead of buying singles.

i am looking at knit picks and the denise set. i will be going to a LYS this weekend to check out the denise but the knit picks are online only - i have one fixed circ coming, so i can check it out before i buy, then i'll see.

if you have one, the other, both, or a different interchangeable, please let me know your thoughts!! How is the cable? How strong is the join? how pointy are the tips? Do you like them?

thnaks in advance!

I have the Denise set and I love them. I do all my knitting on circulars. (I am left handed, but was taught to knit right handed. I recently taught myself the continental method, and just find it easier to hold the circulars)
I have only had them come apart once while knitting. The cables supplies, etc are great, I never "need" a different size than what is available.

Hi Jenny,

Personally I use the Addi's, and am buying their interchangeable set (have ordered it from my LYS)

Thanks! i actually went to a LYS (not exactly local, but 80 miles away, LOL) and looked at the denise and the addi - the addi set was REALLY NICE!!! but i ended up getting the knit picks, a few of their int. set. they are just smooth and wonderful to work with, i am so happy.

I hope you enjoy the addis!!
