I tried searching to see if this had been asked before, and didn't find anything;
I have only been knitting about 7 months, and as the only knitter in the family... I have no chance of hand-me-downs, lol. I bought cheap bamboo double pointed needles and straight needles on ebay (like $20 each kit which had size 1-15 or something like that), so I'm pretty set there, but I'm still building my collection of circular needles, and with most new projects I have to buy a new set of circular needles, which is getting annoying, lol. I get home and think, "Oh, I'll start this, I can't wait!" and find out I do have to wait, because my circulars aren't the right size or length. Sometimes (like what I'm working on now) I'm working with a size smaller needle (which is fine) with way too long of a cord (since I had bought these for an adorable poncho).
So, the other day when I was buying yarn at my favorite little shop for my new projects (can't wait to finish, they are going to be so cute!!) the owner and I were talking about needles, she suggested the Knitpicks kit. I really like working with bamboo over metal, so I would be springing for the Harmony wood kit if I get them. She said that everyone that gets them loves them... For the people here that have them, are they really all that and a bag of potato chips? I love the idea of being able to swap the tips with various size cables. If I get them, it won't be for another couple months since they are pricey, but wanted to look for opinions
Thanks in advance!
