Good idea! I have a set of Denise I haven't used in years. I could sell them, but first I'd need to find that one elusive pair that are lost in a project somewhere.

Same here. My missing parts are cables. They didn't come with the set but if I pass them along I want to include all the pieces. I wish I could buy Knit Picks through the Shop here.

because of arthritis and fibro, my needle picks would be 8, 10, 10 1/2, and 11's. the larger needles are easier for me to work with, and make knitting faster, too (unless it is a small weight yarn, which I have done before).
