I had to register on this site based on this post alone. How awesome of an idea is this?!
I, too, have the Boye Needlemaster Interchangeable needles. In fact, I have 2. I bought 2 so that I could do 2-at-a-time sock knitting, or have multiple projects going on at once. I definitely have a love/hate relationship with them, but I thought I was stuck with Boye brand stuff. I cannot stand the cables or the joins. But I adore the needles and the simplicity of having all the sizes I may ever need at my fingertips. I also have a full range of straight needles, but sometimes I want to or need to use the cabled needles.
I even spent an hour online looking for a Boye 8" cable so that I can have 16" needles. After an hour of Googleing and frustration, I came across this post. Almost literally, a beam of light lit up my desk and angels started to sing.
I just ordered the stuff needed to make my own customizable cable system from Amazon. It should be here Friday. I cannot wait to make the 8" cable so that I will be able to easier make beanies for Christmas.
Anyways, this is my first post, and I wanted to say THANK YOU!
