Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

There were a few questions asked that I answered in emails but thought that maybe more of you wanted to know.
1. The cables are very very flexible and will work great for magic loop.
Obviously what I'm working on isn't set up to do magic loop since it's more than 200 stitches on a 32" circular. But I did this to show that they do flex well but I would need a much longer one to make it work.
2. The points are fabulous!

See how nice and sharp these are. All of them are US size 5. The Susan Bates are just like the Inox Express but I can't find mine right now. I may jsut have too many needles if I ever got together all the UFO's and missing needles.
I don't have an Addi to show you the difference between them and all the rest. I had a couple at one time but I hated them enough to give them away. If you check out the Knitter's Review postings on this, Clara posted a picture. I think it was on page 3 of the comments.
3. The join is smooth.
I like to think of myself as a fast knitter. I don't have a lot of time to sit and just knit so when I do, I like to speed. I don't like sticky cables and stitches that get stuck or don't move freely. So when I say the joins are good, I mean it. I can fly with these needles. If I couldn't go fast, I'd be complaining.
I have no problem complaning about tools that I can't work with. Many have heard me complain about Denise and Addi's. I just don't like them. I'm glad they work well for the rest of you. I've tried to like them, but I can't. If you want to hear my complaints, I'll make another post at some point. Since this one is about Knitpick's Options Needles, my only complaint is that the sizes are not stamped on the needle.
