Since you asked...

Kmkat wondered about the sharpness of the Hiya Hiya needles compared to Knit Picks Options. I haven't yet had a chance to compare them side by side, but based on the catalog pictures, I'm guessing the Knit Picks are a bit sharper.

I also should mention that the needle tips are relatively short (about 3 1/2 "). This is not a problem for me, but might be for some depending on how you hold your needles.

Betsy asked for a "down the road a ways" review. Good idea. Remind me if I forget.

Thanks! The KP needles are rather sharp, and their Harmony needles are sharper still. I found -- after much experimenting -- that I prefer tips that are not as sharp because I am more likely to split the yarn with the sharper ones. Sounds like I should investigate the Hiya Hiya needles.
