for those of you with with both KP's nickle-plated and Harmony tips. When I use my nickle-plated tips, I can get a tiny bit paranoid that they're constantly unscrewing (which they're not) because the light sound they make hitting each other sounds almost exactly like the joins after they're a tad loose. Do the Harmony tips do this as well? I would think that they don't because they are wood, but since I've never used them I thought I'd ask here.

"The Swatch is good. The Swatch is wise. Listen to the Swatch." - Sandi Wiseheart
I have both, although I'm a metal sort of knitter, so I prefer the Nickels and haven't found too many yarns I prefer on the Harmony over the Nickels. They (so far) haven't ever come untwisted, but I always use the little pin. (I actually quite like the little click, actually. It makes me feel like I'm actually knitting. Sad, I know.)
OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.
Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
