Interchangeable Circular Needles Comparison
 
I would like to purchase a kit of interchangeable needles. So I have done a cost and content comparison on Addi click, Knit Pick options, and Denise Interchangeables. While I have read that the cables on Knit Picks are vary better than others, I have come to the conclusion that the Denise needle kits are the best for value and content.

I know that everyone has their own likes and dislikes. I just thought that it would be nice to hear some opinions.

Thanks! :cool:

Here's a couple threads that have addressed this question before:

I have the Knitpicks needles and love them, but if I had the money I would probably buy the Addi Clicks!

I would love to buy some, but I have so many regular Addi's that it would be a waste of money.

Yes, Denise is definitely my favorite. Had options, but they were not really to my liking and I sold them. More recently, I bought the KA Exchangeables. I like them a lot better than Options, but they still won't replace Denise in my affections.

I love my Knit Pick Interchangeable needles .
I like how flexible the cables are. No complaints here!

Love my Knit Picks! I haven't tried the Denise, though.

I adore my Options set! I have tried others but for me they are the best.

I like the Options, too, but the cables have unscrewed and have pulled out.

I have the Addi Click (as a treat for myself) and I really love the way they go together so securely. I don't like that they have only 3 cables and don't have any available yet, and they are expensive. I'm an Addi(ct), so I have tons of those, too.

I guess I'm just a glutton. :shifty:

I have Denise and am very happy w/them. Not the best cable for Magic Loop, but I've never ML'ed so that doesn't bother me. I like how you can connect the cables together for longer sizes, though I have also bought 40" and 52" cables. I've used Denise for curcular knitting w/2 cirs w/out problems.

I have several Knitpicks fixed circs and I do really love the cables on them. These are my favorite sock knitting needles. I have no experience w/their interchangable sets.

One of the sets I really want is the Addi Click, even though it doesn't contain some US sizes, no extra cables, or needles, or anything. The other set is KA Bamboo Switch. They're both expensive but someday I will save up and get them. :)
