Bought the “combi” set off eBay today ($19.95 + free shipping) Don’t worry, sheldon…if I decide to buy a full set I’ll probably buy it here. Also, ETA on the rainbow Denises? :mrgreen:
Let us know how the cubex are. I am curious what it would be like to knit with a square needle
No problem. I’m curious, too. I already have an old set of metal knitpicks which I’ve had for years and don’t use too much (I keep them for lace purposes.) Dunno if I need Novas, too - since I have Addi as well. Wood is missing from my uh, collection. :teehee:
Here I thought I was the only one collecting interchangeable sets :teehee: I have two so far. I also have tons of regular circs. that I got on ebay. They are bamboo. I bought like every size because they were cheap and they were a waste of money.
I have: Addi (turbo?)
Knitpicks Zephyr (dh got them for me for xmas.)
Knitpicks metal sock dpns
Arriving soon: wooden knitpicks 5" sock dpns, scored on eBay
8 billion bamboo straights and dpns I also bought on eBay. I love them and they were cheap!
Holy knitting needles :roflhard:
I have two and thought that I was over doing it. I am just beginning though
I forgot to mention my bates/boye straights I bought second-hand. I like tools and ny husband enables me because he has 3643643433 tools and shrugs if I say I think maybe I have enough needles? Lol
The right tool for the right job. :roflhard:
collecting them must be part of the addiction, new toys!
i love my knitters pride and hiyas- and am always looking at all the others…
Yup. Totally addicted.
My husband said I’m like a drug addict with yarn…I’m like a drug addict with NEEDLES, TOO. LOL
yep- i started knitting after a lady in jury duty showed me continental, up till then it was crocheting, but knitting only now…: :knitting:
and it has helped unkink my stiff fingers!
They made me do jury duty when I was pregnant, in the third trimester and with a 22 month old and…knitting needles weren’t permitted! I brought crochet instead but didn’t get much hooking done as they dismissed me after several hours.
I bought the Combi set here in KH. Not sure why you’d buy ebay at all?
Backordered. I checked here first.
Ahh, I see. Well sometimes we need our supplies NOW! I know how that goes. :teehee:
I really ah, needed to test out knitter’s pride needles. Lol
Do you like 'em? Well, do you?
I love mine! I have the Novas. :happydance:
Have you used knitpicks equivalent? How do they compare?
They might arrive today, if not, tomorrow.
Sorry, I thought you already had them. The Knitpicks and Knitter’s Pride needles I have are pretty much clones so I like one about the same as the other. I bought the Nova set here. The Knitter’s Pride does have the sizes on them which is nice. Apparently Knitpicks has changed their needles so the points are different so I don’t plan on ordering needles from them again. I managed to poke my finger on my sz. 5 and it [B][I]h u r t ![/I][/B] It’s still sore a couple of days later.
Comby’s are back in stock! But I don’t know how long they will remain in stock. They definitely sell fast when I put them up.
I very much prefer having the size on them!
