We have just received a brand new set of interchangeable needles from KA. The only other bamboo set we have had only contained 5 needle sizes. This one has ten, 5-15. It comes with ample cables, all tucked into an invisible pocket on the side. The cables screw on to the needles and it is a very smooth join. I brought one home and tried it out and had no trouble sliding yarn over the join. It's small and compact and would travel very easily. Sells in the $99.00 range. This would be great to add to your Santa list!
