Knitters Pride has a new set of needles called SmartStix. We have a couple of sets on order. If these well received we may add the interchangeable tips to our stock. What makes these so fabulous is they are marked at 1" intervals on both the needles and the cords.

They made from a high quality & lightweight aluminium that is easy on the hands.
