That almost makes me want to buy 2 sets of Boyes, just for all the dpns!
Almost. Great idea though!!

Kinda makes you wonder though... it would be brilliant for someone to make a set of interchangables, sizes 0 through 15, 2 sets each, with tips that ARE dpns as well!

They're not long enough tips to practically function the way DPN's do in most cases, but they work great for i-cord, which only has a few stitches.

You can still use Denises for I-cord with a short cable in between.

Oh I know. I was just fantasizing. *sigh*... Interchangeables that double as dpns. *sigh*

... in a perfect world...

I use the Denise's for DPN....not with the short cord though as someone mentioned. They are long enough for (some) i-cord without any extension.

I don't use the cord in between for the size - I use it so I can slide the I-cord to a tip to knit the next row.

oh, like using 4 needles with each 2 connected to make 2 dpns that have a cord in the middle? Not sure exactly what you mean. Oh or maybe you just unclick the needle from one end of the cord and then put it on the other?

Well, the unclicking one needle from one end would work, but I meant I use 2 interchangeable needles and the cable as one would use circular needles to knit I-cord. I didn't mean I use the shortest cable, just like one of the shorter so you don't have to slide the knitting too much, but long enough so you can use both ends while they are still connected to the cable. Sorry if I was confusing!
