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!
