I got a whole set from here for around $30 bucks. I have used several sizes and they are nice to work with. very smooth, the tips are not too sharp nor too blunt. great if you are looking for a deal and to have them "in case" i got them to have until i could afford a "better" set but I have not been so inclined to purchase different ones as these have held up great. I have had them for about 10 months with no issues of splintering, flexible but dont snap, etc.

comes in sizes 0-15 and right now the whole set is $24.99

good luck i hope you find what you like

Granted, they are not as sturdy as Clovers but several years later, they are still working fine.

I got a 6" set for $15 on eBay and they are smooth with a good point, better than Clover, and the price can't be beat. I have several other sets from other Manufacturers, but I now have every size and don't have to run shopping for them each time a pattern calls for them. They have come in real handy knitting gloves and fingerless mitts.

When in doubt try the Knitting Help Glossary on the right side of the menu bar. It doesn't have all the abbreviation but it is a good place to start.

At the top of this forum in a sticky post is a list of commonly used abbreviations and the glossary has a lot of knitting ones.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
