And it's only seven bucks. No huge sacrifice.

I would've gone to get this for you.

Doooooo it!!!!


You both needs Options ... 'cause I'm the expert now, you know.

Kate -- the separate needles & cords are a *feature* ( ) ... no worries about that unless you don't get them fastened tightly enough. One thing I wish the Options set had is a little rubber piece like the Boyes set. It allows you to grip the needle tip tightly while using the key to get a good solid connection.

Anyway, I haven't started my DS (again) yet. I *did*, however, start my Diagonal Triangle Tank last night.

I have some curling...didn't notice it when I cast on the 24, but it's doing it with the 18.

I tried to take a photo of my progress last night, but it was too dark so the photos were crap. No rush, since I can't knit on it for a while.

I tried to take a photo of my :squirrelhands: last night, but I wasn't coordinated enough. I forgot about Photobooth, so I'll try again tonight.

I also agree on the buying-of-Options. You can always sell your other needles on the Buy/Sell/Swap forum. [/enabling]

Willow, that yarn is

Ya know, I've only got 110yrds of mine... maybe I should frog it and start again thinner. I can't just order more; I've reached my yarn spending limit for the month.

Mine too. Im gonna finish off what Ive got in the alpaca, and block it, and if its too small for me...Ill figure something out. Its too pretty and soft to waste.

Maybe seam it up and be a headband or something, rather than tieing it..

SERIOUSLY?



You need to buy them. Your other needles will not go to waste, I assure you. You will love them. I love that they are all in separate pieces, I carry the case with me everywhere and always have everything I need. And yes, someone will buy your other needles on ebay if you want to sell them!

This is mine so far - getting there now, but it's still really curling in half.. I stretched it out for the pics though :-)

There's a close-up and a further back shot... sorry for the shadows on the images ;-) The close up lets you see how shiny the yarn is :-) And oh dear gods, how I love my options.
