Sadly, they are not interchangeable with the Boyes. :(

I like that Swish!!! Now I wish I hadn't bought that Encore at the get together!!! :(

it looks like there are more colors for Memories too....and more options in the natural yarns that would be good for dying!

Order the tip you need and the cable size you want, they sell them separately also. That's what I did.

SWISH

I'm so happy they have a washable wool!! I've been meaning to make an afghan for some friends who got married but have been agonizing about what to use that won't break my (hedge)hoggy bank!

I hope it's soft!
