KP Options
Can someone post pics of their knitpicks options set? I would like these for Christmas, and I don't know if the pic I see on their site is REALLY what I'm getting. Thanks

I can't post a pic right now, but what you see is what you get. I just went back and looked at the pics on the website. The needles come on a cardboard sleeve that labels the size.

The end tabs and turn keys come in 2 little plastic zip bags which I have left mine in.

I love my set. The cord is wonderfully non coiling....

I have also gone and ordered the smaller circs for sock and more plastic sleeves.

My only complaint is the needles themselves are not labeled for size. I have not purchased the needle sizer yet.

Buy it, you will not regret it.

I second Dee... you wont regret it. I recently doubled my stash of needle tips so Id never be without the right size, or so I can do 2 sleeves at once... I LOVE them and I was never a metal needle fan until now. I was an Orthodox Deniseist.

40" cable and Magic Loop, Kelly! MAGIC LOOP! Repeat after me, "I doubled my tips so that I can work on more projects at once."

The only thing you see in the pic that you don't get is a second organizer case.

I want them so bad, but I find it annoying that they don't have a 16in cable. I remember this being addressed before, but I don't remember what the answer was..

check out thestickie
look at the stickie on interchangeables p. 36-37. you can shouten the cables easily enough. But, the shortest I was able to work with was 18inch tip to tip (the needletips are longer than a standard 16 in circ needle)

Thanks for that info, Laura. Maybe I'll just have to bite the bullet and get Addis for those 16 in circs I love for hats!
