@mojo11, don't discount the stainless needles just don't get the ones that aren't interchangeable. The one that broke wasn't had it been it would have been a matter of just replacing the cable. Since they weren't interchangeable I lost the needle set.
I love the stainless circular rounds.
@Jan in CA, I noticed it due to it catching a few stitches. So I brought out the kit and hooked up the size needles I wanted and kept going.
Good times. I'm more than miffed that I didn't start knitting sooner in my life. I'm loving it so much.
