I love my KA's Knitguy but the only thing I would be concerned about for you is the needle length and how comfortable they would be in a man's hand.

Attached with the join they come out right at 4 inches. If you could live with that I would highly recommend them as an alternative.

That's a very good point, cacunn!

Bumping this topic because I'm curious to know how it all turned out. Mr. Mason, did you have a chance to try out the Denise's? How did they work out if you did?

Not yet. The shop I intended to visit doesn't currently have any in stock. She said she would be happy to order them for me but I hate to have her do so just to find I don't like them or want to purchase them.

She's going to email me when she gets in another order.

Thanks for the update. Hope you get this problem figured out.

KP has started selling a new set of acrylic interchangeables - I don't suppose you'd try those since they're newer, maybe their cords will work better for you? Or are you far too burned by Options now to take a chance? (They have been getting good reviews, for what that's worth but then that's the needle tips...I don't know if KP tries to improve the cords every now and then, really though I think it's probably substandard manufacturing at one of their foreign factories).

Thats a shame. I have never used KP circs but I have the DP and love them. I also have Denise Interchangeables and have never had a problem with them. Hope you enjoy your Denise set as much as I have.

Ok now I know what happened to your KP Options! Sorry to hear it!

I happen to have the Denise set and I really love mine~never had any trouble with them coming apart, and I'm knitting a looooooong shawl for my Mom right now with them. They are comfortable to hold, smooth and quiet, and it's SO easy to hook 'em up, too!

hopefully you'll get a chance to try them soon, and figure out if they'll work for you! Good luck!
