I love the appearance of the new KP Sunstruck needles and looked them up online to see if by some miracle they were offered in all the sizes in fixed circulars ... they are not. The only way to get 32" circulars (my preferred length for magic loop knitting) for sizes bigger than sock sizes is with the interchangeables, which I do not like.

Knit Picks needles are NON-options when it comes to what I prefer.

I was so excited when I saw these needles. My Harmony interchangebles are my favorites most of the time. Pulled up the site, my CC at the ready & didn't order anything.
I was disappointed with the lack of the needle selection for the Sunstruck series. Since it's new hopefully they will add to it in the future.
Still a big fan of KnitPicks.

I was "awe"struck by my "Sunstruck" interchangables until I made 2 projects using the same no. 8 tips. Even though I wash my hands throughly before I knit, the tips became kinda dingy, and appeared darker than their shiny, smooth non-used mates. I wrote to KP, and was told to "wash with mild soap". OK, so what I got after washing them (with super mild Woolite) were two poor needle tips with no protective coatings, resins or anything else...just bare, un-smooth, un-shiny unadulterated pointy wood sticks. Should I have finished the cleaning by putting something like lacquer on them? Any suggestions would be appriciated?
