That's exactly what I thought before I got the Boye Needlemaster, and they only confirmed it. Then, I got the KnitPicks Options, because they looked so similar to the Addi Turbos I was so used to using, I decided to give them a try. I was hooked. I even ordered myself some 4 pairs of the #0 24" circulars for socks when they came out.
One of many knitting guys.
CONGRATULATIONS TO AMY AND SHELDON ON THE BIRTH OF THEIR DAUGHTER!
I have the Options and absolutely love them. The knitting teacher at my LYS actually was telling me about how she would never want interchangeable needles because of the bad joins. I brought in my set during a Free Knitting and now that she's seen the super smooth joins (and the most flexible cable EVER) she is going to order herself a set! And I, personally, use them all the time and have yet to have a needle unscrew if I've tightened it properly. They're absolutely as amazing as everyone says. At least.
now i reeeealllly wish mine would hurry up and get here!
