I did something crazy. I just ordered a set of the new 10" straight needles from KP. That was a total extravagance that I didn't need, but DH told me I could have it for my B-day, and I just couldn't resist. OMG! I'm not just a yarn stasher, I'm also a needles stasher. I've got serious problems. :teehee:

That's great. I hope you have a lot of fun using them. Happy Birthday. I'm looking at an order for something to make up $50 minimum and I'm having such a hard time narrowing it down. I want it all!

I saw those and it made me wonder when they'll come out with nickel straights.

I'd probably never use them for anything but stitch holders but I'd probably have to get them. I also have problems.

Hope you enjoy them.

I didn't know about these. I hoard not just yarn but needles also. I'm gonna have to go look those up! I like the nickle plated better though-wonder if they'll come out w/ those soon!

I'm not sure when they came out, but I just saw them today. I got my new IK today, and that's where I saw the ad for them.

Ohh, those are purty!:inlove: I don't even really use straights, but maybe I would if I had those.

What a great birthday present for yourself. Give us a critique once you get them.

I swear I'm never leaving for a week of vacation again where I can't get internet access. I just saw this post and got onto KPs and they are sold out of the 10 inch set. I love needles and I love Harmonies. I'm gonna be in big trouble.

I got my harmony straight needles from KP today. They are just beautiful. They come in a really nice case, they're the same smoothness as the circs, and best of all....the sizes are marked on the needles!! I LOVE them!

Lucky you! They are beautiful. That settles it, I have to order a set. I can't wait till they get some more in.

Those are so going my xmas list. Are they lightweight?

jdee

Yes, they are lightweight. I don't know about the 14" because I never buy needles that long. Anything that's bigger than a 10" needle, I use circs for. That's just my preference. But, I've been knitting with these, and I love them.

Wouldn't nickel straights be heavy?

Oh and Grats on getting your needles *drools*

I don't mind. :)
Judging by the Options they'd be hollow in larger sizes (just like aluminum straights).

Yeah, me too, but I'm putting those needles on my xmas list. It beats getting something that plugs in.:mrgreen:

I'm so jealous!!! Tell us all about them when you use them and we will knit vicariously through you!

I love knitting with them. I'm already using them for my 6x9 HAP rectangles. They're nice and smooth. I just love them.

I understand perfectly. It's not stupid at all.

Ronda, it's not being stupid, it's being covetous. :) Those are beautiful, and they're going on my list also.

I bought these for the interchangeable circulars in two sizes and although they are very pretty and smooth, I found the colors distracting. Particularly with variegated yarn of any type. Bummer. I guess I just like my bamboos. Maybe I'll try then again, because I put them down after a couple of projects.
