I'm pretty new to knitting (I believe yesterday marked four weeks that I've been knitting), and I have a couple different needles, but most of the projects call for different needle sizes than those that I already have. I've been thinking about purchasing the Denise Interchangable needles, but even those aren't complete in the sizes that I need for certain projects.

Are there any good sets available anywhere that include many different sizes? I'm looking mostly for smaller sizes, but if there are any sets that have bigger sizes also I would be interested.

Also, does anyone know any good quick projects? I knit when we're slow at work and I like getting things done very quickly. Smiley

Thanks,
~pam

ebay might be your best bet for getting a variety of needles for a reasonable price.

Have you looked into interchangeable circular sets?  There are many to choose from, the most popular being the KP Options, KP Harmony, Boye Needlemaster, and Denise sets.  I have the Options myself, and I love them more and more every day!

I definitely suggest the Boye needlemaster--I just got them a week ago and I'm in love!!  It's so nice to have all the sizes I need, and all the cord lengths, right in a little zippered pouch!  Added bonus--you can get it at Michaels with a 40 or 50% off coupon.  I only paid $35.

I don't like knitting with the metal needles, and normally not the plastic ones but i ADORE my denise set, so soft on my hands but not too soft. I have a pink denise set I use ALL the time, then I went and ordered an entire set of DPN's from knit picks int he pretty harmony wood. I have several addi natura circulars in size 4, 3, 2, 1 and 0 so it didn't bother me the denise didn't go smaller. I prefer wood at that size anyway.
