Because Big Shawls Call for Long Needles
Large triangular shawls take really long needles and, although I've got a 60" interchangeable cable, the tips of my plastic Denise set have never seemed sharp enough for anything but the most basic lace. So I used the last of my birthday money and placed a Knitpicks order.
The tips and cables are sold separately and screw together (for sizes 4 and up -- smaller sizes are available as fixed needles.) That may be a good thing. I know I use lighter or darker wooden sock needles depending on the color of the yarn I'm working with.
Not knowing for sure what I'll be making, I guessed at the tip sizes but I think I'm set for anything!
