I have a few of the Sunstruck and a few of the Harmony and like them a lot. I prefer the plain ones, but I bought the few Harmony a few years ago. I'm using them now for the hats I've been making on Encore. Lovely!
Unlike your friend, I can't have them all so I will enjoy the ones I have. I think it's great that there are different needles so we each can use the best we can get for our individual knitting styles.

Agreed! I can't possibly afford them either and to be honest if I'm happy with something I don't usually feel the need to try something else just for the sake of trying it. I was happy with my KPs, but I did need another set of fixed circs for the socks and since they were close in price I did give the Hiya Hiya a try.

Yeah, I've spent way too much on needles already but do need the small size circs, hence ordering them as I order other things and getting free shipping. I look for discount codes too.
