My Michaels doesnt carry the Boyes. Otherwise, Id buy 2 sets, mostly to have those smaller sizes to knit socks on 2 circs.

AND, if I have several projects going at once, Id have needles for EVERYTHING!!!

BWAAA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAA!

I love my Boyes! I have never knit with the plastic, but I just love the feel of the aluminum. And the pretty colors help me tell the different sizes.

I was just at Hobby Lobby were I saw they have the individual pieces to the Boye's interchangeable. So you can buy extra needles and cables in different sizes too. I plan on getting another 21 inch cable for sure. And depending on what size needles I use most, I'll probably add another set of those! Then I can have LOTS of projects going all at once!

Unfortunately Hobby Lobby doesn't do those great 40% coupons that I now about. But DH got mine on eBay for about $40 including shipping. Brand new set.

There was a 40% coupon for HL in yesterday's paper, so maybe they've caught on to that great idea...

Jazz, Im SO glad you bumped this thread....because I really should update everyone on the problem with the Denise cords snapping at the cord tips....

I have had this happen to me THREE times now. With my last return for a replacement, I enclosed a note stating that it was the third time this happened.

WELL....in Saturday's mail, I received a WHOLE SET OF REPLACEMENT CORDS along with a note that said they have improved the process for making the cords....a whole explanation of that process, and an apology.

What AWESOME customer service!!

I love my Denise's. They are wonderful! I'm thinking that if the planets ever align and I get to a store that has them when I have a coupon, I will buy a set of Boye's. If I don't like them, I can always trade them here.

Why would I need two sets of interchangeables? Because I am so promiscuous with my projects that I actually have all my cords in use at once and I have other things I'd like to put on the needles.

I bought my Denise at my LYS and if a piece breaks, I can get a replacement from the LYS rather than having to mail it to the company. They are guaranteed for any damage except pet chewing. Apparently, my LYS has a distributor license with the company (or some business term, whatever, they're official ).

If you've ever used a 16" circular needle of any kind, it would have had shorter tips, similar to the Denise, to give you an idea of how that would feel to knit with.
but they're not as short as Addis!

cool! My cord just snapped the other night, but I know it was my fault - I knit WAYYYYY too tightly and pushed down my knitting on the cord - oops!
