Knitpicks' cords and tips aren't what they're used to be.

I need 40" or more for two at a time socks. I opted for a fixed size 1 Nova. I'm going to test it out maybe today.

Let us know how they work for you. I've been wondering if the novas are about the quality of what the knitpicks used to be.

The join is pretty smooth, the cord is nice. Tips are pretty pointy (but not too sharp, think.) For $6.50, I'm pleased!

I think I could do 2@time socks on 40" Novas but I prefer 47".

I was actually thinking myself about getting the 47" for 2 at a time. The 40" just doesn't seem like quite enough cable.

I just double checked. I was in error (or lied?) and my needle is a 40", works fine.

For me when doing magic loop, the more cable the merrier. Like for hats and things, I like using my 60" cable on whatever size it is lol. So I figure a 47" would be an ideal for 2 at a time socks.

I use 32" for a single sock and 40" for hats.
