Agreed, but for a while KnitPicks were exclusive customers of KnitPro, at least that's what i undestood from KP's owner explanation. I guess that their permission to KnitPro to sell at the rest of the world came due to an endless amount of people writing to KP and asking when will they ship intl. BTW, the KnitPro sets have much more different combinations - they have smaller interchangeable tips, cable connectors etc. KnitPicks decide what components will be appealing to the US customers.
