How are the Denise Interchangeables as far as snagging yarn when going from the cord to the needle? I have some bamboo circulars that are constantly snagging :( Also, can the interchangeables be used as DPNs?

I just bought my first addi circular needle, and I LOVE it! However, they were $$$$

I finally ended up buying a set of the Denise needles on eBay b/c every store I tried online was out of stock, and the buy it now price, even with shipping, was better than directly from the company! They should be here any day now, so I'm excited to get them!

since seeing you all talk about these i have been looking into them and they look like a great idea. They certainly would make my project that requres me to keep changing the needles easier...however i am curious as to how different they are from the Clover Bamboos. I had a pair of Susan Bates plastic circulars that didnt' even make it past the first row i was knitting before they got tossed. i mean i know i can assume they are different but am i going to feel like i am using that plastic Susan Bates again? I would hate to spend the money just to toss them out. :rollseyes:

What did you not like about the Susan Bates circs? Maybe that would give me a better idea how to answer your concerns.....

hmmm...i am not sure i think it was just the feel of them. I learned on the bamboo, it was the very first set i had. The Susan Bates just didn't move the yarn smoothly i guess. Bad taper maybe? not sure... :thinking:

OK - well, that has not happened to me with the Denise's. I really do love them. They arent exactly PLASTIC...they are resin. Maybe that makes the difference?

This site really helped me when I was learning to knit socks. The show is probably coming on again soon.
When doing your 1st socks I would recommend using a worsted weight yarn and size 6 or 7 dpns; using this larger yarn and needles will be easier to handle as u r learning...then u can venture off into sock worlds unknown!
I, too, LOVE, my Denises!! They don't snag, don't twist, are comfortable to use, etc!
