Bought the "combi" set off eBay today ($19.95 + free shipping) Don't worry, sheldon...if I decide to buy a full set I'll probably buy it here. Also, ETA on the rainbow Denises? :mrgreen:

Let us know how the cubex are. I am curious what it would be like to knit with a square needle :)

No problem. I'm curious, too. I already have an old set of metal knitpicks which I've had for years and don't use too much (I keep them for lace purposes.) Dunno if I need Novas, too - since I have Addi as well. Wood is missing from my uh, collection. :teehee:

Here I thought I was the only one collecting interchangeable sets :teehee: I have two so far. I also have tons of regular circs. that I got on ebay. They are bamboo. I bought like every size because they were cheap and they were a waste of money.

I forgot to mention my bates/boye straights I bought second-hand. I like tools and ny husband enables me because he has 3643643433 tools and shrugs if I say I think maybe I have enough needles? Lol

The right tool for the right job. :roflhard:

Yup. Totally addicted.

My husband said I'm like a drug addict with yarn...I'm like a drug addict with NEEDLES, TOO. LOL

They made me do jury duty when I was pregnant, in the third trimester and with a 22 month old and....knitting needles weren't permitted! I brought crochet instead but didn't get much hooking done as they dismissed me after several hours.

I bought the Combi set here in KH. Not sure why you'd buy ebay at all?

Have you used knitpicks equivalent? How do they compare?

They might arrive today, if not, tomorrow. :-)

Sorry, I thought you already had them. The Knitpicks and Knitter's Pride needles I have are pretty much clones so I like one about the same as the other. I bought the Nova set here. The Knitter's Pride does have the sizes on them which is nice. Apparently Knitpicks has changed their needles so the points are different so I don't plan on ordering needles from them again. I managed to poke my finger on my sz. 5 and it h u r t ! It's still sore a couple of days later.

Comby's are back in stock! But I don't know how long they will remain in stock. They definitely sell fast when I put them up.
