...To knitting needles. I have so many DPN's, Circulars, and straight needles that its embarrasing, but that didn't stop me from wanting a set of interchangeable needles. I just knew that if I just had either a set of denises or KP options, that would be all I needed. I read many reviews, before choosing KP Options as my set of choice. I love it so much, and use it all the time. I've since added the longer cables, larger needle tips, and the fixed circulars to my collection. I needed the smaller needle sizes for socks, now that I'm learning to do them on circulars.

Now you'd think that I'd be finished buying needles, but I just ordered a set of denises from ebay. Why?! I do not need them, but there's something about new needles that makes me almost drool. I'm so pathetic...Please tell me I'm not alone in my needle fetish.

Bags! Bags is another thing I can't seem to get enough of. What is wrong with me?

I agree with Sue - you are a knitter with an obession, you are perfect! :thumbsup:

Wow! That's probably the first time I've ever been called "perfect" :roflhard: ...And all I had to do is crave needles? I like being a knitter. :roflhard:

You're only a true addict if you also have a Boye Needlemaster set and a set of Plymouth bamboo interchangeables.

I think you're perfectly normal. Some day you'll be knitting something super slippery and you'll be happy you have your Denise needles.

:noway: What? They have interchangeable bamboo needles? I love bamboo needles. I guess I should have done more research before buying the denises. :doh:

Well, I'm still looking forward to getting my new needle set. :teehee:

I got my Denise needles today, and I LOVE them. I'm glad I bought them. :cheering:

I love my options too, but I don't know why I thought I needed both sets. :rofl:

I got one of those short drawer plastic things at Sprawl Mart (which I try to avoid, but end up buying to much crap at each time i DO go in)
the top drawer is for DPN
the middle one for notions
and the bottom one for Circs
I have a plastic needle sizer hanging off the side so I can check the right size each time I grab needles
and each drawer is nearly half full

sprawlmart...I love it!

I'm off to some kind of mart today to buy a really sturdy wire basket drawer rack thingie to put yarn and stuff in. I can't believe I just cleaned out my stash closet and it already looks like a yard sale in there.

My Plymouth Bamboo Sister set just came in the mail this morning. What i will do with them I do not know since I love my Options but I love small small compact things and had to have them!
