New KnitPicks Options "Try it Needle Set"
This is a very cool idea!

I have the nickel and zephyrs and am dying to try out the harmonies (one can never have too many needles!) This is a great, and affordable way to try out KP's different interchangeable needles!

That is an excellent idea! So many people were buying one set to test anyway!

I love the idea, but find it a bit steep price wise. For $20, you have half paid for the Zepher set, and 1/3 paid for the nickle ones.

I think I would be more inclined, even at $15.

I'd go for it, but these are all sizes I don't use, though I have a 7 in Harmony. Now if they had larger ones that included 10, 10, 11 or the 7mm, I'd jump on it. Or if you could do a 'make your own set. So I'll be buying a couple tips separately.

I added up the cost to buy each item separately and it was 20.46 vs 19.99---I'd be more inclined if there was a bigger bonus in savings.

I think I'm going to go for it so I can try all the different materials. Plus, extra cables are always good. A friend and are are going to place an order together to save on shipping. It will only be a bit more to get the free shipping and that will be easy for us to do!

I've tried all 3. They are all great, different, but great.

When I start a new knitter out, I recommend that they purchase the full set of Zephyr's. The Z's are slippery enough, and grabby enough, for any, the price-point is the best! They don't break the bank.
