Speaking of needles, how long has Boye been making bamboo straights and circulars? I stopped by Walmart today to run some errands and went by their yarn section and noticed a very small selection of Boye's bamboo needles! Are they brand new or have I just been living under a rock and never noticed?
ETA: margz, you could do what I'm going to do: add the KP needles to your birthday or holiday list and tell your loved ones that's what you want. Most years my parents get me something I have absolutely no use for and either I end up returning it or never using it, like the bag they gave me last year which I've used twice since then. Instead I'm going to let them know about the KP needles if they ask so at least it won't be something I drag out of my closet when I remember I have it.
