A Purchase I Wasn't Coming Home Without

As you may know, I have been working on my Berry Rusted Root sweater for a little over a month now. And from day one,I have had a hard time finding the 24" circular needles that are needed to complete this project. I have looked everywhere in town with no luck. I have known for some time now that I was just going to have to break down and by an interchangeable circular needle set, but I didn't know it would be this soon. I know there are several different companies that make interchangeable needles, but I didn't know what brand to choose?

I won an eBay auction for some 32" bamboo circular needles about a week ago, but after knitting with them for 2 days the tubing on the end broke. I am in the process of getting my money back for that purchase. Well, I was cleaning out my purse and I found a 50% off coupon for Joann's but it was an in store coupon only. I told my husband I would be back and I was off on my hunt.

I went to Joann's with my coupon in hand, but when I got there they did not have a circular set. I was not going back home without my needles! So, I drove over to A. C. Moore Crafts and they did have the set for $69.99. Well, that was not an issue for me because I knew A. C. Moore accepted their competitor's coupons. Long story short, I decided to purchase the Boye's Needlemaster Interchangeable Needle Set and I got it half off. I am happy with my purchase and my knitting can continue.

Look at that determination! I think interchangeable needles are essential to any knitter. I have accumulated so many one size needles that I was so happy when I got my knitpicks interchangeable. You will not be sorry.
