Interchangeable needles
Hi, I am new to knitting and new to the forum and was considering buying a set of the interchangeable needles. Do you all have a suggestion as to brand and are these sets usually good to have.

There is a sticky post at the top of the msg list that you'll find all kinds of info. Plus a search of the forum will bring up more posts than you'll have time to read.

Overall you'll find that the majority of people love their interchangeables and the majority love the Knitpicks Options or Harmonies best. I have Denise Interchangeables and Options. I don't even use my Denise needles much anymore, I love the Options!

Well, there are lots of threads on this, but I have a feeling that most people are going to suggest KnitPicks Options or Harmony. I personally find that for a new knitter, the Denise interchangeables are a better deal because you get a wider variety of cord lengths, 1 more needle size and all of the needles are labeled, which makes them a bit more efficient.

However, I suggest looking back at other threads about interchangeables.
