Hello dear KPers,
I need advice--Sooo, my vacuum cleaner ate one of my Knitters Pride #4 Dreamz Symfonie wood needles today...btw, this shawl project has been doomed since I began it...the story is way too long to get into details.

If I ordered Caspian #4 interchangeable needle from Knit Picks, would it work with my Dreamz cords? Knit Picks was closed today (Saturday) to ask.

Thank you for your help.

Knitter's Pride and KnitPicks cables are interchangeable, so it would work. You can still place an order on the weekend.

I own both Knitters Pride and Knit Picks interchangeables. I intermix my cables with no problems. I have Caspian shorts and love them!

I hope your Caspian is better than the ones I got. They were so rough I consider them unusable but Knit Picks did refund the purchase price. The cable that came with them came apart when I tried putting it together with the tips. If you prefer Knitter's Pride you can place an order anytime through www.handsomefibers.com and they ship promptly.

Thank you for this info, GrumpyGramma. The Knitter's Pride were on sale at Hand Some Fibers with an additional 10% off and free shipping...I placed my order.

The quality of Knitter's Pride (imo) is so much better than Knit Picks. I've had my set now for over 2 years & not a problem...can't say that when I had Knit Picks set.

Handsome Fibers is a hazardous place to look. They have two Knitter's Pride sets I'm drooling over. I like buying one set of tips to check them out and ordered some Royales. Now I really, truly need the full set. *sigh* They do 20% off, no minimum order on major US holidays too.

Yes they are interchangable. I like both but I prefer the dreams smoothness.

All Knit Picks, Knitter's Pride needles work with either Knitter's Pride or Knit Picks cords. However, the material of the needle is important for matching gauge of a project that is in progress.
