YEah, what they said about Circs... I can't knit with straight ones anymore, they're too awkward. HL has some Susan Bates and Boye needles as well as Clovers and they all will probably need the hot water dip before using. Circs didn't used to be that way, you could use them right out of the package and they'd straighten out with the weight of the knitting, but they must have changed the type of plastic they use for the cord.
