:teehee: My daughter graduated this summer and we found that we were drowning in debt so I couldn't afford them. DH just told me to get them though. He said you have to have the right tools! :cheering:

:psst: Plus he may feel a tad guilty because he has a boat (read $$$) and he takes art classes at college (a little more $) so it was my turn! :teehee:

No, I just got the metal ones. I tried a few circs last year and loved them so I figured I'd go with what I know. I would like to try them someday though.

I love mine! They are all I use (well except when I had jury duty I used my Denise's). I did just order some Harmony ones though...we'll see how I like them.

I'm extremely new here, can I ask what "Options" means?
Secondly, what differentiates one from "Junior" to "Senior"?
Thanks! Mary

When you get 100 posts you'll switch to senior. ;)

Options are interchangeable needles from Knitpicks that have taken the knitting world by storm. They also just came out with wood interchangeables.

Also, you can buy just a few if you want to try them out. That's what I did and I fell in love with them. :teehee:

Yayyy!! Options are the best! I don't think I'd be as into knitting as I am if I hadn't purchased them. I love them as much as chocolate. :)

congratulations!!!!!!!!! i'm with the other poster who said she is much more into knitting with the options than without.

i did order size 7 of the harmony tips as well as 0 and 1 in the fixed circs for socks. i'm hoping the size 7 tips will give me a little bit better grip on this alpaca laceweight i've been wrestling with. i'm supposed to be making wisp for mom's birthday. but it was monday and i only have 4 repeats done b/c it's so stinking hard!

I have to say when when I first joined a few months ago I thought y'all were a bit nutty being gaga over your needles. I had only been knitting a few months and thought needles were needles. Could I have been more wrong? I love love love my options. I started with one pair just to see but I quickly graduated. My dd loves using them for her projects too. May have to get her her own set for Christmas. Just thought of that. Then we wouldn't have to share.

Before I started knitting, I thought there was only one kind of yarn. Silly.
