I love my Knit Pick Harmony interchangeables. I adore circulars now.

Yes, Options are nickel plated, Harmonys are wood, Zephyrs are acrylic.

I definitely couldn't live without my KPoptions, but I pretty much bought those 4 weeks after I started knitting... so I don't feel like I waited too long ;o)

I'm absolutely in love with my swift and winder though! It's just so nice to be able to wind yarn only when you're ready to use it :o)

Whereabouts can those winders be found?

I actually ordered my swift and winder both from knitpicks.com

One of my main considerations was "what if it breaks" - as I've seen quite a few winders break at LYSs... which is why I ordered from knitpicks, I just KNOW the amazing customer service will replace anything that breaks no questions asked!

They also have a very reasonable (imo) price.

I got my ball winder on eBay, a Jumbo for about $35 (US).

I notice the comments on the Addi, they are great needles but as said expensive. I love Hiya Hiya needle and am falling in love with their interchangeable. about 1/2 the price of the Addi and almost as good.

I think that's the point of this thread. I really wouldn't have thought that an expensive needle would make such a huge difference in the ease of my knitting. But they certainly do! And I truly wish I would have let myself spend the money for that level of quality a whole lot sooner! Now, I own several Addi's turbo circs, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
