Options or Denise for linen yarn?

I’m about to start the Dollar and a Half cardigan from IK using Soft Linen. Should I buy the KP Options or just use my Denise? I’ve never knitted with linen before, and while this has some acrylic, I will admit to wanting an excuse to order the Options. Any opinions?

I would say with my limited experience with linen, that I’d prefer working with the Options. And I’m not enabling whatsoever :shifty:


I’ve used Linen before… I made bath mitts from it before Christmas with my Denise’s and after with my Options… and although they both worked fine with the linen yarn I just love my options so much… haven’t found a yarn they won’t work with that I’d suggest them… I haven’t even opened my denise’s since Christmas… :teehee:

I’m planning on making this too… just gotta get some socks finished first… :happydance:

I would say Options, byt it’s really a matter of personal preference. If you tend to like a bit of drag to your stitches, than use Denise. If you like speedy, slippery needles, than I would go with Options. I tend to use my Options for everything, though.

I just hit the button for submit order, so I thank you for helping me make my decision. You know I was going to buy them anyway…

I do not like drag, I love the slippery DPNs by Options, so I know I’ll enjoy the circs, too. Now I have time to finish some socks before they arrive, then it will be cardi time!
