wow o_O I'd feel as if I was knitting with garden tools! I can't stand needles bigger than a size 10, maybe I'm just weird.  Tongue They feel so clumsy to me.

I have been using these with my Twinkle projects and I just snapped a cord today!  They are convenient, but I am not sure if the cords joins can handle the weight.  It's nice to have the larger sizes, though.  I still prefer Addi's, even in the larger sizes.  I wish I had them in 17's and 19's.  I am going to have to splurge and get them.  I think it would make the knitting on the Twinkle projects much smoother.

I saw those at my LYS and bought them as well.  I just started a ruffled shrug project where the ruffles uses both #17 and #19, and I was starting to fret that I had to buy regular circulars  Wink.  Now I'm all set!

Of course, after hearing from the rest of you here, I'll be certain to watch out for the cord snapping.  Hey - at least they come with a lifetime warranty!

ooh that sweater *is* pretty.. it's not like other sweaters you see knit out of bulky yarn that just look.. mammoth.  Grin in that case, I'd rather knit a sweater out of size 19 needles than start a sweater in size 6s and stuff it in a closet when I'm halfway through..  Cheesy btw do the denise cords snap more easily when it's cold/exposed to temperature changes and stuff like that?

Not sure how weather affects the cords joins, but I would imagine that they could be more brittle when it is colder.  The weagther was not a factor in my case...I am in Los Angeles and it has been warm.  I don't know what happened.  I have had Denise joins pull apart before, but totally snapping is a first.   I am going to have to contact the company and see if they will send me another cord.  It was one of the new pink cords.
