I just bought a set of lightly used ones from a friend, and hands down it is the best I have seen!

The only thing that would make it perfect for me, is if they made a 16" cord

I love how light the needles are and how the cable never, like ever twists up while I'm knitting. The joins are nice and so far, I have 0 problems!

eta: I bought a bunch more stuff from KP last night as I'm so overjoyed with their CS and products. :D

Yeppers, KP is absolutely the best. I've got so many miles on my Options.....and hoping to have more!

Have fun with yours!

Ruthie :o)

I have the Harmonies and love them once I get them put together. I'm glad you are happy with yours.

The length of the needles in the set wouldn't work with a 16" cable, BUT you can buy the 16" fixed circs! I have several in my most used sizes.

Why not? Is it just cause of the length of cord it would need vs the extra metal due to the connector?

I have my denise set that I can use for the 17" if I need...but it is a very used size around here...and really it isn't really necessary to buy them all in a 16" size. I do very much like my Options though...much preferable to anything else I have tried!

It's because of the length of the needle itself. They are too long to work well on a 16" cord. The needles on the 16" fixed circs are shorter.

I also have the Denise set and personally I found the 17" too long for some hats so I prefer the KP ones myself.

I really really want some of these! Enjoy them!

*sigh*...the purpose of buying a set of interchangables is so you don't have to buy a whole other set of fixed....

Silly. Oh well...it is still the best set out there. I actually had someone tell me that they think the joins are better on these then on the Addi Clicks...
