Question about KP Options Cable lengths
For those who have these, does the length listed tell you the actual cable length or the length of the circular needle it makes? For example, if I bought the 24" length and some needle tips, would I be working with a 24" needle or a 33" needle (24" cable plus 9" for needle tips)?

I am thinking of getting a single size to try out on my lace project and want to make sure I end up with the needle length I want.

Thanks in advance!

I just measured mine with the 24" cable on it and it came out to be just a little under 24" with the needles attached.

so it lists the length of the circular needle it makes, not the cable.
