Options vs. Denise! HELP!
I am fairly new at knitting and LOVE this site, Thanks AMY!!

But I am DONE with straight needles. I have a friend who knits and uses Denise needles.. they are wonderful but I love the way the sound of the aluminum when I knit - it's somewhat relaxing when I am stressed..

So... I have the money and want to buy a set of good needles.. but I am SO torn! I love the look of the Options, but I know I already like the Denise.. So please - SPAM ME! Tell me everything you know about both sets, which do you prefer, do the Options still have the tell-tale sound that soothes my stresses?

Help me decide!

*I appoligise if this topic has been spoken about before, I am very new to these boards and tried to navigate around but only got lost.. Thank you for all of your help!

Here's a thread that discusses all the pros and cons of the interchangeable sets. The thread was started long before Knitpicks Options became available, so it won't be until a lot later in the thread that those are even mentioned.

Welcome to knitting and to the site!!
