I've heard they're going to introduce some longer cables, and possibly shorter ones too. They've already announced dpns in larger sizes now, up to 11s.

Longer? Who needs longer? We want shorter ones, goshdarnit!!! Do you have an inside source?

Someone posted an email they received from KP over on the knittyboard. Longer ones in the small sizes for MLing socks. Maybe that's for their regular circulars....

Oh, longer cables for the "classic" circs. That makes sense. I could see some people preferring 40" cables for those.

Ooooh, I'd love some 40" classic circs! I can't wait!

I've been planning to try the 32" to ML socks, but I've been busy with other projects.

I did my swap socks on the 32'' classics. Two at a time, toe up.

Worked just fine, but I'd like to try the 40'' as I bet there is a little less strain.

Really? I've done it both ways and don't really have a preference since they're essentially the same thing. The only difference (IMO) is that you have to pay attention to what needle to pick up if you use two circs. Well, that plus you need to own twice as many needles. To each her own, I guess.
