Denise vs Options vs Addi ??
I have grown rather tired of my denise needles. I feel like the cords are stiff and like to stay in the same shape that they are in the box even though I am knitting with them. SOOOOO what should I buy? I have a set of the KP double points and LOVE them. Tell me how to spend my money wisely!!!!!!!

I don't have the Addi's but from seeing how much they cost, I would go with the Options. I love my Options and they are pretty affordable since they come with so many needle tips and cables. But if you find the Addi's for a lower price or you just like them better, you could buy those.

I too am very unhappy with my Denise. I recently started picking up Addi's on ebay and I LOVE THEM . You can get them at a very reasonable price. So I've decided to heck with interchangeable needles and will continue collecting Addi's.

You should order one or two tips in the OPtions and also the wood Harmonies, plus a set of cables. See how you like them. If they are what you are looking for then order a set.

The Options are pointirer than the Addis and, IMHO, the cables have less memory and therefore more pliable. I have an Options fixed circular size 3 stored with an Addis size 3 and an Addis Lace size 3. They are all wrapped the same way. If I take all three out of the case and hold them up by one needle the 2 Addis remain slightly coiled while the OPtions hands straight.

I'd go with Options. For me, it's all about the cable.
