Well, Knitting on the Go is sending me replacement needles at no charge. Apparently, I am not the first to complain about them and the manufacturer made some changes to the polymer. I'm willing to give them a try, but I did buy some Brittany 5" dpns from one of my LYS. The lady at the store told me that if they broke, I could bring them back in for a replacement. Wooohooo!
Ang, I did know about the stores in Castle Rock. We made an impromptu trip to the outlet mall there and I had quickly looked up the yarn shops in the area.
The only problem was that we spent too much time at the outlets and then the shops were closed. :( Next time, I will go there FIRST! We moved to the Springs on Dec 19 (from Southern CA) so we would've loved some company for Christmas. Next time!
