Okay, so I asked advice and got one comment so I did a lot of internet research to find out how people liked the different types of interchangeable circular needles. I found that most people loved the Denise brand. So, that is what I got. I was able to get it on a site that gave me free shipping. I got it in half the time they suggested that it would take, too.
So far, I've been too busy to knit much of anything; but I have knitted a hat to go along with a pair of 6 month baby booties that I knitted to put in the county fair. This hat was made with a pattern that I've never tried before. It has bobbles around the edge and halfway up the hat. It has a beautiful brim that flops over the face.
I absolutely loved using the interchangeable needles. I don't own too many needles and only one set of double points, so I used the size larger and the size smaller needles in my Denise set to be my double points to finish off this project. It worked out great.

I've seen on some of the threads that some of you use interchangeable circular needles. So far, I've just be using what I can get at my local supercenter. We don't have any speciality stores near here. So, I've been very limited to the patterns I can follow since my only circulars are a size 3 US.
I'd like to buy a set of the interchangeable circular needles. I've looked up some on the internet. I've found them priced from $45 to $65. Some are wood, some are metal, and some are acrylic.
I'd like to know if you have a set of interchangeables, or know someone who does. What is your opinion of the kind that you have? Which material type do you prefer to work with.... wood, metal, acrylic? Why do you like or dislike them? What makes your set great (or awful)?
I'd like to save money, but I would rather spend more to get a great set.
All advice is appreciated!!!

Tonight the young people of our congregation lead church services. The boys lead the men's service in the sanctuary, and the girls lead the women in the fellowship hall. My daughters both took part. My older daugher (age 10) lead the first song of the service and then gave the middle part of a 3 part service on the birth, death, and resurrection of Christ. Her daddy helped her write it. My young daughter (age 5... and a half) read the passage John 14:1-4. It was obvious that I was gushing with pride, especially afterwards when many of the ladies were congratulating the girls and telling them how much they appreciated their being loud. Yes, many of our ladies who attended the service are older and hard of hearing. But, many of the girls were very "soft-spoken," too.
