Nickle Plated Options Interchangables
Knit Picks is having a sale on their Nickle Plated Options Interchangables....Just what I was waiting for!!

So Im going to be placing an order with them today...

My question for all of you options users...

Do I really need that $20 specialized bag they offer to hold the needles and cables??? Or can i just put them in something I come up with?

Also, Is there something else I should buy to complement the set?

One more thing, do all there options needles ie: the harmonies and acrylics interchange with the same cables in case i want to try one of the others in the future?

Thank you!!
Melissa

I bought the Options interchangeable set about a month ago, and I totally love it!

The set comes with the needle tips, 4 cables, a zippered pouch for keeping everything in, and a few other little things (end caps for cables, etc). I find that the zippered pouch that comes with the interchangeable set is just fine for keeping all of my small knitting supplies together ... I just slip the pouch in my knitting bag with my project, yarn, etc. I'd say there's no need to buy an additional bag to store these things in, but that's just my opinion.

As far as whether the cables are compatible with the Harmony needles or others, I'm not sure as the Options are the only needles I've purchased from Knit Picks ... but I'm sure someone will be able to give you some insight on that, I know there are lots of people on the forum who own both Options and Harmonies!

Anyways, congrats on finding the Options on sale ... I know you'll enjoy them!

All the needle tips are completely interchangeable.

I bought the plastic stand to hold my needle tips. It is really handy since I can store things like a pen or a crochet hook in the empty slots.

Yes, when you buy the actual set (not the individual needle tips) the bag and everything is included. I definitely thought it was well worth the price ... I'm sure you'll enjoy it!

I didn't like the plastic case and the notebook thing is way too bulky and the plastic sleeves eventually break. SO..I just bought this case for mine! I know a few people who use them and love them!

I bought the one on the upper left with the light background and flowers, but I guess it's sold out now.

Very cute! A lot more stylish than the plastic one ... but do you find that it has enough space for all your notions? Or do you keep them separate?

I don't have it yet, but based on my friends case it's mostly just for needles.

What do you mean by notions..markers, scissors, etc? I wouldn't keep that with them anyway. I have a makeup bag that I keep in my knitting bag with all that stuff.

When I get it I'll make a post about and do pictures..how's that?

Yes, that's exactly what I meant. I figured most people probably keep these things separately ... mine, however, are currently all jumbled in the one plastic pouch in my knitting bag. Maybe eventually I'll get it more organized!
