Love, love, love my options! Slick, pointy, and sturdy. I don't generally have problems with my stitches sliding off and I'm not a tight knitter. Also, when using them, I don't feel like they're going to break or bend.

I didn't know that DPNs could be different sizes than what was listed as size 1, 2, 3 etc. and learned the hard way. The Options were sized differently than the bamboos that I had started knitting with. Options' size 2 is size 3MM which is a different size than the bamboo US 2 (sized 2.75) that I had started the project with. Maybe some of the more experienced knitters can explain better.

KP has just added size 2 (2.75 mm) to all its needle sets (size 1 in 2.25 also); so if you still need that size, it's there now.
