New Line of Interchangeables!!
I've already posted about this in the Interchangeables "debate" topic, but I've just ordered these and I'm so durned excited that I have to share with the knitting world at large!

The good folks at KnitPicks have just released their very own line of interchangeables!! (They are also selling a line of their own addi-look-alike standard circulars in smaller sizes as well as a line of DPNS... far less expensive than Addis)

http://www.knitpicks.com/needles/Needles_Options.aspx

These look (to me) to have a lot in common with Addis: the finish, the cables, and the smooth joins. So I have VERY high hopes for them. AND they are much more reasonably priced (not to mention interchangeable!). My new set will arrive sometime next week so I'll come back and offer a review of them later, but until then, I'm curious to know whether ANYONE else has gotten their hands on a set of these babies and what they thought!

Ooo, those look really nice!! Too bad I already have the Denise AND Boye sets, I really can't justify buying a third :( .

If you try hard enough, you can justify everything!

Please, please, please, to those who already ordered, post a review after you have tried them out. I am certain that after a few positive reviews I could easily rationalize them even though I already have the Boyes.

I am debating getting a couple of the circulars in the smaller sizes to see if I like them, or just jumping in and getting the set. The more I look at it, the more I like the whole idea.
