pulled the trigger
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 :)

N0obKnitter 04-30-2013 08:52 PM

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 have: Addi (turbo?)
Knitpicks metal
Knitpicks Zephyr (dh got them for me for xmas.)
Denise interchangeable
Knitpicks metal sock dpns
Arriving soon: wooden knitpicks 5" sock dpns, scored on eBay :-)

8 billion bamboo straights and dpns I also bought on eBay. I love them and they were cheap!

Holy knitting needles :roflhard:
I have two and thought that I was over doing it. I am just beginning though :)

N0obKnitter 05-01-2013 07:18 AM

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:

collecting them must be part of the addiction, new toys!

i love my knitters pride and hiyas- and am always looking at all the others...:)

N0obKnitter 05-01-2013 07:35 AM

Yup. Totally addicted.

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