Oh boy... my fear now that I have the needles is that it's going to do this in the middle of a project, but I'm glad to know they have such great customer service.

Hey Kelly

Do your replacement cords have that new hole built into them for a paperclip. When I bought the 40" and 52" cords for Magic Loop from Kaleidoscope Yarns I noticed they have that hole. So I went the Denise website and it said:


Quote:
o NEW! For knitters with hand or wrist problems, a straightened paperclip can be inserted through the cord tips and used as a lever to lock or unlock knitting parts
I was so excited because for the first time I've been able to change the needles without asking my mom to do it for me. By the way I've found that the key for the Boyes set fits perfectly in the hole. I'm planning on replacing all of the cords in my kit with the new cables so that's why I'm asking if yours have the hole.

BTW, Amy reminded me that the little hole is great for slipping a piece of dental floss in to function as a lifeline.

I am a total heretic BUT I went to my LYS, my heart set on the Denise's. When she showed them to me and I touched them I decided I would much rather have the Boye, even though I agree that the way the cords attach is better. I got the Boye for Christmas and LOVE them, no problems with the join, I just do it the way the instructions tell you to and haven't had any loosen up while knitting. I've thought about the Denise's but they seemed similar to bamboo and after my first project I simply knit too tight for bamboo. My stitches stick like crazy-a problem I don't have with metal. Also, I like a really pointy tip and the Denise's were pretty blunt (compared to the Boye). I don't have a problem with my hands aching (except when I learned to hold the needles a different way and that was entirely related to muscles, not the needles) but I also don't knit for hours at a time. So there is my opinion. :D
