now generally speaking i like knit picks. (i know yarn snobs are now moving on to another blog, but please, cheap yarn really isn't all that bad, especially in this economy.) i like their needles and i like their yarn. i have bought many things from them but man i am sooo aggravated! this is my 4th circular needle that has come apart in the last year (another died a tragic death when my 3 year old got ahold of the scissors). i bought most of these as a set about 3 years ago. to me, they cost a lot of money but demonstated my committment to knitting.
this one popped apart while working on my february lady sweater and about 25 of the needles came off before i realized what was going on!! which aggravated me even more! so what am i going to do? well for now put a new cable on. and then i guess i will be ordering some more cables. my selection is getting low on lengths now.
