vvs, you might want to get a try it set, both companies have a set with each of the needle types included.
As soon as I can, I'm going to order the wood needles from WEBS because of the different colors and pointy points. I noticed someone else, way at the early part of this thread wasn't thrilled with Addi Turbo. I bought my size 2 with a long cable (don't know how long) for 2 @ time socks and I do not like them. The cable is kinked and spiralled. I bought them locally at Ben Franklin with the understanding that they were returnable and then was told they aren't. Guess I won't be spending money on something expensive I want to try there again, and since I won't be looking for needles I wish to get locally, I won't be looking at their yarn and stuff either. Too bad.
