Thanks all! Appreciate it!
I like the idea of the sampler set.
I feel like she hasn't used nickel plated too much. She mentioned something she liked (and also disliked?) about them (I can't remember--something about the yarn sliding easier), but then essentially said she preferred wood.
I was a tad confused. I think I'm as lost as she is when I talk about my hobbies!
Anyways, that's not good to hear about the Knit Picks coming apart and the needles/tips breaking!
I'll look around and see what to get her.
