I LOVE LOVE LOVE these needles! I want to be Mrs. Knitpicks Options that's how much I love them!
I've been knitting for about 7 months now, having crocheted since I was a zygote. I have a variety of needles (my n00bie overzealousness I suppose-I have way too many) from the very cheap to the "my hubby will divorce me if he knew how much these cost" needles (although that WOULD clear the way for me becoming Mrs. Knitpicks...but I digress...)....I even own 3 Addi's ....and these surpass them all. They have a wonderful weight to them without being heavy, the yarn slides ever so nicely without flying off & me luvs them sharp sharp tips! I should have started w/these because I never would have bought the Gross National Debt in needles. Put $1 a day aside for the next 2 months & they're yours. Right now shipping is free if you spend $40 USD. As for the shipping...I dunno how they figured 7-14 days because I had mine in 4 days. FOUR. Ordered on 07/09, shipped on 07/10 & I had them in my hands on 07/13. I can't recommend them enough!
