ohhh... good ones Amy!!!
I have a Denise set and use them for all sorts of things.
1. I use them with the little end buttons to hold my work. I never need to switch needles and have not had to use a stitch holder yet.
2. I use the knitting needle cables to pick up dropped stitches. If I have to frog a piece, I pick up the stitches with the cable because it is so much smaller.
Thats all I can think of right now.
On the Needles: Calla Tank (Magknits.com) and a baby blanket for my co-worker
Next on the Needles: My own design!!!
