Are there any non-metal interchangable needles?
I know the Denises' and Boye are available to be interchangable but I like the Susan Bates lightweight plastic feel.. I don't care for metal too much.
Anyone know of any interchangables that are NOT metal?
Thanks

The Denises aren't metal; they are resin. From what I understand they are very lightweight.

Big love for my Denise set. Even more love for the fact that I got them for $5. I love a good bargain!

Love my Denises also but I do have a bamboo interchangeable set which attach the same way as my Boyes.

Me three!!!

A bamboo set of interchangeables is also available from Plymouth . You'd have to find a retailer, though.

Believe it or not the Boyes's Needlemasters actually were made in a plastic also at one time. I have a set I bought on ebay, and they are my favorite set. I was able to buy them for a lot less than what a new set of the Denise's cost. The cables are very easy to knit with, very flexible, and of course they should not have any problems getting through a airport screening point. I'm always checking back on ebay for another set, I'd like to have at least 1 more.
