In my internet travels one question I see coming up frequently on Ravelry or Knittit is "what kind of interchangeable knitting needles should I get?". It's a fair question and everyone has an opinion, but nowhere is there a comprehensive list of the different sets available and their pros and cons. It doesn't help that some of the sets are very similar and are even made by the same manufacturers for different distributers. So I documented my investigation as I went upon my own journey trying to figure out which interchangeable knitting needles I wanted to buy.
