My view on Denise has changed

Ok, so initially I was only moderately happy with the Denise needles I purchased from here … however, now that I’m using them so much, I am just LOVING them.

Anyone else use the Denise Rainbow circulars??


You’ll definitely hear from both sides of the fence on this topic! Some people love these needles and others hate them. There’s just no accounting for preference!

Personally, I have a mixed bag of needles–Boye interchangeable needles (great for “sticky” yarns), Clover Takumi bamboo circulars and DPNs, Cubics circulars, Knitter’s Pride Dreamz DPNs, and a hodge-podge of straight needles that people have given me.

Glad to hear you’re learning to love your Denise needles. I hope they serve you well.

I wouldn’t say I hate them, but since I like to use Magic Loop and I prefer a thinner cable they aren’t for me.

Denise was my very first experience with interchangeable circs. I certainly do love how easy they connect, plus the way you can ‘invent’ any length you want with all those spare cable pieces and connectors.

I did like using them a lot. I remember them being very warm in my hands, buttery in feel. Nicely pointed and accurate. I liked their ‘quietness’, too. Altogether, very pleasant to work with.

My knitting changed, and the Denise [B]cables[/B] became a bit of a hindrance to my speed. Not that speed is my priority. But they simply couldn’t keep pace with my yarn type and stitches. I still have my Denise circs, in boring original gray.

Denise stalks are extra long, aren’t they a bit? I think they are. This could also contribute to your great experience with them. People with larger hands like that extra length to grasp onto. I also like the longer stalks, even though my hands are smallish.
