Since they came out I have been ordering some of the Options needles about every 10 days. I purchased the Options set, a second set of needles in sizes 4-8, 13, 15 and 17 needles, extra 24", 32", 40,47, and 60 inch cables, the needle sizer and extra pages for the book. I also purchased the circular needles 0-3 in 16 and 24 inch lengths. I think I am done as I have Addis in 32 inch lengths.
I just love the cables, the needles, everything about the set. I moved all of my wips to them and started several new ones. I have nothing but good to say about the needles. I have worked with about 10 different yarns on them and had not problem with any of them. I seemed to breeze right through a lace shawl and a worsted Christmas stocking. I had a problem with one size 7 needle and Knit Picks promptly replaced it.
I think I figured that I had spent about $130 on the items I ordered and it would have cost over $1000 to buy the same thing in Addis. (12 size needles, 5 cable sizes equals 60 needles plus another 5 double sizes equals another 25 possible needles. 85 needles times an average Addis price of $12 equals $1020. Plus now I have the benefit of having every size I could possibly need.
