Yup-- go here: http://www.knitpicks.com/Options+Int...PNDETipWD.html

and you get the 13" tips at the bottom of the page, and then in the box it says cables with various lengths, and you click on that.

SIZE 13 HARMONY TIPS ($8.99)

SIZE 13 NICKEL-PLATED TIPS ($7.99)

24" CABLES ($3.99 for a set of 2)

So, this is how you can get the size 13 circular needles from KnitPicks.

Total cost for US13 Harmony tips plus cables: $12.98
Total cost for US13 Nickel-plated tips plus cables: $11.98

Still undercuts ADDI fixed circs by about $10!

They are working on getting larger sizes of fixed circs I think, but the interchangeables are the WAVE of the future, and so I don't think they are working real hard and fast at extending the line of fixed circs in the 24" length and up.

The itty bitty 16" fixed circs go up to a 7mm, with 8mm due the end of April.

Call me "old fashioned" but I don't think I would be comfortable screwing and un-screwing cables onto a needle I have a few addi's I love the sleekness and the cable but it's not as "pointy" as I like..I have a small Harmony and I love it...the pointy tip, the nice cable etc etc...What a shame Why can't they make em bigger...sometimes I just like the feel of "wood" he he!!!

Interchangeables are more versatile and the joins are smooth, so there's no problem with the yarn catching.

If you want them from Knitpicks then you have to get the screw on, interchangeable ones. Maybe it's time to move on to modern needles. If you just can't bear the thought of them you'll have to find another brand.

OK, here's a bonus for using interchangeables:

When you're on the last row of something, and it's time to cast off: Keeping your live stitches on the left hand gauge needle, change the right hand needle to one size larger, or maybe even two sizes larger.

This makes a better bind off. No chance of being too tight or uneven. It's really a slick technique. Especially for those patterns that say bind off loosely. If I was knitting with a US8, I've been know to go up to a US10.5 for the bind off loosely. But all I had to do was change the needle tip on the right hand side.

Another bonus: if you are not supposed to bind off, but put the live stitches on a holder, or waste yarn...you don't have to do anything...just unscrew the needle tips, and screw on the 'end caps'. You can even wash (for blocking) the pieces with the cord in the live stitches.

I have lots of extra cables for this very reason. I leave cords in the live work til I get back to them.

KnitPicks have no 'catchiness' at the join. And really, trust me, the attaching of the needle tips is as easy as screwing the lid back onto the honey jar.
