I chose Addi because I love to knit with them. The cords are supple, the needles are slick and they don't wear out.

You might want to add Options to your poll, though, they are getting rave reviews from Addi users.

I chose clover, because I love bamboo needles. Especially for DPN's.

My vote used to be addi's, but that has been surpassed by KnitPicks Options They are slick, point, interchangeable, what more can a girl ask for?!

I guess I'm one of those um, fussers. Here I go with my fussing:

Hey, fussing's fun! I get to use emoticons I've never tried before!

Seriously, though, I like Denise and Options. They both have good customer support, which is a definite plus.

There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman

I have always used what was availble at my LYS, which is Susan Bates. They are ok, not my favorite. I have bought some KP classic circulars and I love them! I am asking for the Options set for Christmas.

I guess my next favorite would be Bryspun.

I would have voted "Denise" until I got my Options in the mail yesterday. I only had time yesterday to knit one row on my shawl with them, but I can see that they could easily overtake Denise in my heart.
