laptop_knitter.. It depends really on what items and what yarns you believe you'll work on the most. If you loved making fine baby wear for example you'd want smaller sizes. If you love the big thick chunky yarns and want to make chunky blankets and jumpers etc then you go to the higher end. I think most people go with a general spread and tend to add to their collection as a new pattern need arises. I have very little in the smaller end and I find they break so easily that I now avoid plastics for those if I do buy. I have tended to find I use 6's a lot and anything from there to tens.
