Sorry if this has been posted somewhere else, I can't get the search to work for me, my computer keeps timing out... I looked through and didn't see what I wanted just glancing at the posts.

Anyway, does anyone have the bamboo interchangeable set from Web's? I looked at the Plymouth also, but the one I saw only has sizes 5-10, where the Webs has 5-15 and the case, etc. I haven't seen too many people talking about it and I just wondered what everyone thinks.

Thanks!

Melissa

I have one, and I like it. I do wish they had longer cords available, though, like Denise makes available as a separate purchase.

I don't normally do afghans, only an occasional baby afghan, so I don't normally need any longer cords, so that shouldn't be a problem for me. I've thought about the Denise set, but I really like bamboo alot.
Thanks for the input!
Anyone else have any likes/dislikes?

I have this set (only up to 10.5) and LOVE it! The bamboo is similar to Crystal Palace and the cords definitely soften up over time and use. (I also steamed a couple of mine.) Additionally, Webs has great customer service if you should ever break or lose a piece. I highly recommend!

I really want to get this set someday. . . maybe with some of my Christmas & birthday money I'm getting this month! I don't know if I can justify buying myself a Webs bamboo needle set AND a swift & winder, though. . .

I got the set from Plymouths...they are supposedly both made by Plymouth, but I had a lot of problems with my first set and the same problems with my replacement set, so I don't use them at all anymore. The biggest annoyance is the needles unscrewing, but the first set a couple of them stripped and I swear I didn't overtighten them or anything.

Maybe there is a difference, though between those and the Web's set.

If you are looking for the Webs Interchangeable needle set, I have them on my website, and they are 20% off until the end of the month. The coupon code can be found on the specials page, and also on the front page of my catalogue.

Where is the code on the specials page? I just looked and can't find it. Apparently ordering several hundred dollars of yarn from WEBS a year isn't enough to get me a catalogue either! And I just placed an order, too.

Sorry for taking long to say "thanks" for posting the code. Is it for the interchangeable set only; other needles too; or ... everything? That's a bit much to hope for, I know!

Deon,

Everything is on sale through the end of the year. The discount coupon is good for all products.

I just got an e-mail from WEBS stating that they do not have a 20% off discount code, and thus did not apply it to my order [actually, they cancelled my order, and didn't seem very happy that I had this code. They are very "curious" about it.] Has anyone else tried this code and it worked? Now I'm the one that's curious! And I was looking forward to those interchangeable needles, too.

Well, now I feel like an idiot! No wonder it didn't work.
