You are going to sadly limit yourself if you limit your needle collection. Do it a little bit at a time....they are purchases you will only have to make once! Its an investment!
I have two sets of Denise Interchangeables
Several circs in sz 2-4
DPNs in 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10, 10.5, 11, 13.
Im waiting for my LYS to get sz 4 & 8 DPNs in, and then my collection will be complete! And then Ill RULE THE WORLD!!! BWAA HA HA HAAAAAAA!
