New Goodies! Denise 2Go Photos & Review
For my birthday (December 23rd), Guy got me this awesome Denise 2Go needle set, and I love it. It comes with 3.75, 4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, and 6mm needles (that's US 5-10), a crochet hook, 3 different length cords, 2 button ends (for turning them into straights, albeit floppy ones) and an extender (for joining cords). The best part? when it's folded up, it fits in your hand. This is an awesome little kit, full of the sizes that I use the most, and it doesn't get more handy and portable than this. The only thing that keeps it from being the most perfect knitting tool ever is that this is the only colour/print it came in and it is the most girly thing I've seen in a while (WHY would something that comes in only one colour come in gigantic pink roses and polka dots?! ), but the functionality and portability compensate.
UPDATE** I haven't used the othe Denise interchangeables, but it says they can be used with other Denise interchangeables, so I imagine they are probably similar. The cables are not super flexible, but they feel sturdy, and the joins are smooth. I like the tips, they are sharp enough for me (anyone comfortable using bamboo needles will be fine with these). Addi Clicks are still a superior interchangeable system, but for the really great price and portability, these are tough to beat.
