BTW, I have to say, people, excuse me, but the Denise are NOT plastic, they're resin - a horse of a different color, really!
I also like that Denise has so many sizes of cords, that they can be hooked together, and that the shortest ones can be used like stitch holders, so when you put the fronts on them, there is no transferring, you simply knit the stitches on and then off again.
thanks for the composition correction... I knew they weren't just plastic! And your points on the cords hooking together is something I forgot to mention that I love as well... any time I'm working on a project and start increasing, I simply link another cable to my working cable, easy as pie! I also use the extra cables and 'caps' to hold my live sleeve stitches... works like a charm. I've also heard the customer service was awesome, so if I were to lose/break something in my set, I don't feel worried about how to replace it.
Good luck, it's such a great purchase, no matter what set you end up with, you will be thankful to not have to run to the store late at night when you get the itch to knit.
