Question - Susan Bates Silverados
Has anyone tried Susan Bates silverado circulars? The description says they are slightly smoother than silvalumes.
Also anyone know a great inexpensive place to get either?
While I was searching I happen to find a few sites I hadn't seen it before so I am sharing.

I love the silverado circs! the cords are much more flexable than the silvalume or and quicksilver circs, and the needles are more comfortable in my hands than the silvalume. You can usually find a good price on the Silverado circs on

I knit rather loose, and they're just a bit slippery for me.

But Susan Bates has been my favored brand needle and hooks since I found them (a long time ago). That's all I use.

I love their original needles and hooks the most.

Haven't tried the Silerados, but LOVE the Silvalume. They're plenty slippery! Our Ben Franklin store has the best selection of Susan Bates circular needles...better than Joann or Michael's.
Always a beginner...sometimes I even finish.

We don't have a Ben Franklins around here. So I may have to buy them online. All we have is Hobby Lobby, Hancock Fabric and Michaels, none of which have that great of a selection of anything, so I won't find a range of sizes etc.
I am an old susan bates lover from way back, so I was quite excited to find out they had knitting needles So now I am on a hunt! Especially now that I am completely and totally addicted to 2-circ circular knitting instead of dpns and my beloved Denise's don't come in small enough sizes
Tax return will be here soon and has to go somewhere right?
