Thank you so much for the feedback everyone. I think I will have to splurge and pick up a set...Though I made the needle case from SNBN today, so that makes me want to own more regular needles! Oh, decisions. Smiley

Tebouchet - I was looking to buy some on ebay...They are going for a little bit (about $5 average) less  than on the Denise site and, like you, I'm impatient!

You're right.  I am impatient.  I actually found that Elann sells them for pretty much the same price as the manufacturer's website so I ordered them from there last night.  I keep checking to see if they've shipped yet...I want to use them to make the Glampyre Boobholder!!

I got mine for my birthday 2 years ago, fell in love and have been using them ever since.  They don't have 17 and 19 so I got Addis for that.   I took them on a trip to Vegas (from Boston) and didn't have any problem getting them on the plane either.  The plastic doesn't bother me and the tips are great like everyone else has said.  I have even called them and got more tips and cords because I tend to have a few different WIPs  Wink and get impatient.  You can order from them directly and the women that answer the phone are really nice.  I asked if they'd ever make the bigger tips and she told me it was really expensive to make the molds that make the needles.  The molds cost something like $50,000 and they couldn't do it just yet.  Maybe in the future but she didn't know when.  I've never used them as straights.  If you get them, enjoy!

I have a set and love them. I did some knitting for profit (yay!) before the holidays so I figured they were a business-related (hah) present to myself. Anyway, I tend to knit to the point of wrist pain and using circs for all my projects helps ease/prevent further wrist pain. (I am very skilled at justifying purchases, can you tell?)

The expense of the needles is one thing butbe warned that you're going to be tempted to buy much more yarn than you did before since you'll have almost all the needles you need for any given project.

I bought each of my crafty sister in laws a set of these needles for Christmas, and they absolutely loved them.  Raved about them, how easy it was to change the needle size in the middle of a project, yadda yadda yadda.  Sooooo, I whined (or my husband said I whined) for a set for myself.  I am a fairly new knitter and didn't feel I had enough experience to warrent a set, but my mother in law hooked me up with a set and I LOVE them.  I use them on everything.  I actually hadn't knit in the round until I had this set.  I was intimidated, and now I'm a whiz!!  I hope to start a sweater for my hubby soon. 

So, in my humble opinion, go, go now...get a set!!

Another happy Denise customer....my only complaint is with the smaller ones, 5 and 6, the cord is pretty much the same size as the needle tip so it's a little hard to slide the stitches back and forth.

Also, did y'all know that these things have a lifetime warranty? I snapped the black part off one of my cords recently (and nearly had a heart attack when my knitting fell off!) So I sent it back to them with $1 for postage (their request) and they sent me a new one, no questions asked. Very nice!!!

they are the only needles I have because my cutest hubby ever when I wanted to learn knitting went all consumer reporty on me and found the cheapest way to get me started and bought me a set and its great because I am still very new but when I want to try and new pattern I just open my kit and viola I have that size needle, no shuffling off to buy supplies like most things I get into.

  One girl stated that it was her first time using them and her only complaint was where the size was imprinted in the needles (the yarn was catching a bit for her) but not at the joins. 

This happened to me too. I just took a nail file and lightly rubbed that area and voila! No more catching!

BTW, I love these needles.   Smiley
