Yes, I meant cables :-)) I am very excited to get them. I have decided on the Knitter's Pride needles. the kit comes with 3 cables, and not the standard 2.

I totally agree. I like very long cables for ML. Mainly because I like doing even my larger projects magic loop. So I need lots of room. I didn't know they even made a 60" cable....that sounds like a winner.

You can get longer cables here. They're only 2.49, you can't beat that price.

Great price thank you. The Nova set says "short tips" does that mean those needles are the short stubby kind? Thank you!!

I got the dreamz set and I just measured my size tip, and it measures a little over 4.5". I would imagine that the novas are right about the same size.
