Just wanted to share this with members who are curious about inexpensive interchangeable needles. I bought a 3-needle starter set of the Premier Interchangeable acrylic needles last spring for $16.00 and was very happy with them. I've been wanting the complete set since then, so when they went on sale last week at walmart.com for $29.99 I ordered them(early birthday present to me--hee--hee). Got free shipping with store pickup. Great set of nine acrylic needle tips size US 4 thru 11, with four cables 24", 32", 40" and 47", eight cable caps, four keys and a clear plastic zippered case. For those who can't afford expensive interchangeable needles or those who want to try something else these might be a nice alternative. Premier also has a set of three Interchangeable chunky needle tips size US 13, 15 and 17 with three cords, etc., for under $20, I will probably order later to enhance my set. I am just a IP member and am not affiliated with Premier in any way. Also I am careful with my equipment so I can't comment on how these would hold up with very hard use. So far with my Premier starter set I have made the huge Marly Bird Garter KIA shawl, 2 pair of fingerless mitts, 7 Dishcloths, baby cardigan and a ladies bolero using fingering, dk, worsted weight cotton and acrylic yarns with no problems. Since the complete set's needles are from the same materials I expect the same performance. Smooth transition at cable joins, cables are flexible and the needles have the right amount of "yarn grab" for me. Earlier this summer I bought the Premier Deborah Norville comfy Interchangeable needle starter set. These are nice needles too, but I like the acrylic Interchangeable needles a little bit more, however both starter kits are an inexpensive way to acquire Interchangeable needles. This is just my opinion regarding the Premier Interchangeable needles, that I thought I would share. Also, since I started using circular needles I am able to knit longer without aggravating my arthritis, yea!
