Thanks, I appreciate your answer.
Decided to go ahead and order the set from KnitPicks. Over the years, Boye cables and I haven't gotten along too well, and with the exception of my Denise circular set, all my knitting needles come from KnitPicks. I love the ease of dealing with them.
I always seem to be 'lending' crochet hooks out to friends who want to learn, with a set, I won't be letting them do any 'borrowing'.
