Knit Picks Harmony and Options Interchangeables
Hello all,

I've been using my new KP Options and Harmony interchangeables to do Magic Loop, but notice that the needle tips come unscrewed every other pass. Does anyone have any suggesgtions for making the joins strong enough to finish a project, yet not so permanent that I can't change needle size?

TIA

Use the metal pin that comes with them to tighten the joint. I haven't had any problem with them coming loose when I use that.
If you have trouble gripping the needle when tightening use a flexible piece of rubber to hold the needle with.

Exactly, use something non-slip like a rubber jar lid gripper to hold the needle while tightening it with the provided key.

Mine always did the same thing until I started using a non-slip gripper.

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
