Your favourite needles?
Currently mine are the cheapo bamboo dpns I bought on ebay.


You?

Neither yet :( I'm still trying to find knitting needles suitable for me. Oh and I HATE dpns! They triggered my problem in the first place!

I hated dpns when I was a novice, too. Now I love them!

Also, I bought a bunch of 13" straight bamboo needles from the same eBayer for $15. Sizes 0-15!

I only use DPNs when I'm making something very small diameter. Like a zebra head.

I love my cheapo bamboo circs that I got from Ebay, Noob, they are awesome! I was thinking of buying the dpns, too, but wasn't sure, now I will buy them!

Turns out I actually hate magic loop...I knit hats and socks and other round things on dpns (I need to try knitting sweaters - it's my Final Frontier! "

the cords are made of plastic tubing, and they have very smooth joins between the tubing and the needle, and if you need longer cords, do what I do, I went to the auto parts store, and for less than $15 I bought enough of each size to make my cords longer. The only problem I ever had was the cord slipping off the needles, but I fixed that quick with a drop of hot glue on the end of the needle, then when I want to change cords to the longer ones, I just use the hair dryer to heat the end, pull off the cord, put the new one on while it is still warm, and walla!
