If you want to get interchangeable with out spending a fortune I recommend these to anyone. much better than the denise interchangeable in my opinion. Similar to the costly ones, maybe not a perfect but very close.Read More
I have owned this set of needles for years and have nothing but good things to say. I tend to use fine yarn, so I most frequently use needle tips in the 2 to 6 (US) size range. This set is great because most sets don't include needle tips smaller than US size 4. I also like the metal needle tips and the fact that the cables are small diameter, yet strong (similar to what yuou find in non-interchangeable circular needles). You can join the cables to create almost any cable length you need. Finally, I bought my set on sale at a craft store, but the Overstock price is better, so you really can't go wrong here.Read More
The needles seemed to be a great idea. The problem is that the extensions unscrew as you are knitting and you loose stitches. I would like to return this item but the site says that it is not returnable. In my opinion it should not be available for purchase.Read More
Boyle knitting kit works very well & fits my needs. No drag on yarn as knitting at juncture of needle & connecting cable.Read More
I don't have a whole lot of money and can't invest in every set of knitting needles in every size so this is the perfect alternative for me. I knit a lot on the subway so I need circular knitting needles to keep from poking people and they're easier to carry around. Now I have them in a variety of sizes for an excellent price. I've never had any problems with dropping stitches. I just followed the instructions exactly to the letter and the needles haven't fallen apart on me or dropped stitches or ruined any of my work. I use all of the accessories that come with the kit to twist the cable into the needle as tight as possible. Sometimes, I do it so tight I have trouble getting them apart. Just carefully follow the instructions and you won't have any problems. I like that the different sizes come in different colors. For someone on a budget this is great.Read More
I hope I am not over-rating this item as I am about to learn to use circular knitting needles. The quality appears to be excellent. I like the idea of having each needle size.Read More

This was a gift for a friend--an avid knitter. It was sent to another state and her immediate response upon receiving it was: "Wow, wait until the ladies in the knitting club see this! They are going to be soooo jealous" I told her about the reviews that suggested that the interchangeable parts could "come apart" and she said she would watch for that. She appreciated the unusual sizes.Read More

Best Ways to Wear Men's Velvet Blazers
Are you looking for a classy, versatile piece that works well for many different occasions? Invest in a high-quality, well-cut men's velvet blazer. Unlike other tailored pieces, the velvet blazer is comfortable to wear. It looks elegant at formal affairs, sharp at parties and cool for the weekend. Read on to find ways to wear velvet blazers in almost any setting. Put on a velvet blazer when attending a formal dinner. A black velvet blazer is an easy way to look polished at formal affairs. In contrast to the stiff tuxedo, the blazer evokes a warmer, effortless style. Create an outfit with a crisp collared shirt and a distinctive tie or bow tie. Add color in the tie or shirt so that your outfit includes more than black or white. If you are wearing a white shirt, select a colored or patterned tie or bow. Only wear one velvet piece at a time and wear tailored dress pants with your velvet blazer for a polished look perfect for any presentation or performance. Wear velvet on the weekend. Dress a velvet blazer down with a pair of denim jeans. Dressier colors, such as black and navy, will allow you to go to a more upscale party or on a date, while brown, tan and grey blazers look more casual. Pair a dark blazer with dark jeans for a stylish look or wear lighter jeans to create a sharp color contrast. A brown men's blazer will look rugged and vintage with a pair of worn-in, stonewashed jeans. Pair a velvet blazer with jeans for a party. The velvet blazer works well in a party atmosphere because it looks both dressy and cool. A black velvet blazer or navy blue men's blazer is most traditional, but you can also keep it more casual than your formal attire by wearing a turtleneck or cable-knit sweater instead of a collared shirt. Finish the outfit with a pair of dark jeans to create an edgier, effortless look or wear tailored pants for a put-together look. View All Men's Blazers Back to Guides Directory View All Men's Blazers
Best Women's Pants for the Weekend
After a week of wearing professional clothes for work, dressing casually and comfortably for the weekend just requires a few pairs of women's pants. This does not mean you have to skimp on style. Whether you want to have a dinner out with friends or simply need to run errands, there are plenty of comfortable wardrobe options that do not involve T-shirts and sweatpants. Stay stylish during the weekend by choosing women's pants that fit and pairing them with accessories, blouses and shoes you already own. Wear khaki pants for almost every occasion. Khaki pants are perfect for weekend wear, especially if you want an alternative to jeans. Khaki pants are casual but still appear stylish and come in a variety of lengths. Cropped khaki pants hit at about mid-calf, and capris fall just below the knee. The most flattering style is straight-leg because it gives khakis the appearance of being well-fitted and works with any type of shoe. Find the perfect pair of jeans. Jeans are the ultimate pants for the weekend. Comfortable and versatile, women's jeans come in a variety of washes and colors to go with anything in the wardrobe. Cuts like wide-leg, low-rise, boot-cut and straight-leg allow women of any size and body shape to find a pair of jeans that fit well. While women's jeans may be considered casual, pairing them with heels or wedge shoes and a loose-fitting blouse or sweater can create a more formal or put-together look. To keep jeans casual on the weekend, pair them with flats and a knitted top. Stay comfortable in velour pants. If you prefer to lounge the weekend away or just run a few errands, velour pants are soft and can be worn year-round. Velour pants often come in sets with zip-up hoodies, giving you a simple option for weekend wear. These pants come in a variety of colors, often include pockets and offer a simple drawstring waistband for comfort. Velour pants are also great for working out, so you can easily wear them throughout the day before a trip to the gym or outdoor activity.

Best Kid-friendly Fabric for Sofas
Finding the right sofa and loveseats that match your room, have the right look and meet your budget can be like searching for a needle in a haystack. If kid-friendly fabrics are on your must-have list, start by looking below. This article will help you find the best kid-friendly fabrics for sofas, which should repel stains and hold up to added abuse from children jumping, scooting and forgetting to remove their shoes before hopping on the sofa. Microfiber: Microfiber is stain-resistant and comes in different textures. Some microfiber weaves are smooth, like suede, and others are denser, similar to corduroy. You may clean most microfiber with water, but check the manufacturer's tag because a few types of microfiber may require cleaning with a compatible solvent. Wool: For sofas, wool and wool blends are great because of their durability. They're less prone to pilling, snagging and wrinkling than other fabrics. Plus, wool is easy to spot-clean. Vacuum this natural fabric with a hand-held vacuum attachment to remove dust. Leather: Leather is a versatile sofa fabric; it can be elegant or totally casual. Its slick surface makes cleanups relatively easy. Beware if you have pets, as little claws can leave scratch marks. Scuff-repair solutions are available, and they can keep your kids' sofa looking good for years. In addition, a quick treatment with leather conditioner once or twice a year will keep the sofa soft and supple. Vinyl: Vinyl is just as versatile as leather and often has the same smart look, but at a much more affordable price. It's easy to clean, too: just spray it with water and wipe spills away. Vinyl isn't as snuggly as microfiber, but in a playroom, it will hold up to lots of abuse. Denim: Just because a sofa is upholstered in denim doesn't mean it'll look like your worn-out jeans. Just like a comfy pair of jeans, denim is sturdy and goes with everything. In addition, denim sofas are available in a rainbow of colors to match your kids' bedrooms or playroom.

What to Pack for Africa's Highest Peak
Imagine that you are planning a trip that will take you from the equator to Antarctica in seven days. Now imagine that you have to limit the amount of gear you pack to 35 pounds or less. The task is getting more complicated. What kind of luggage would you choose and how would you pack for a trip that encompasses such extreme changes in climate and altitude? When Erica Davis, a paraplegic athlete, and Tara Butcher, a physically challenged athlete, climb Africa's highest peak, they will have to answer exactly those questions. The challenge: Mount Kilimanjaro rises from nearly sea level all the way up to 19,330 feet. The trail climbs from the hot bushland through rain forest, moorland, alpine desert and arctic glaciers up to the rocky Uhuru peak. A climb like Mt. Kili presents special challenges when it comes to luggage, clothing and gear. Being prepared for the weather and temperature extremes is a necessity, but it's also important not to pack too much. There is a 35-pound weight limit to each piece of luggage carried by a porter. Most climbers pack one 35-pound capacity bag to go up with a porter and one small daypack to carry up themselves. The daypack: Erica and Tara will have 7 days to summit Tanzania's Mount Kilimanjaro. As they pass from one ecological zone to the next, their needs will change and so will the contents of their daypacks. Each day Erica and Tara will repack their daypacks in anticipation of the specific challenges of the day's journey. In general, their daypacks will include things like water, snacks, dry clothing, waterproof gear and sunscreen. The importance of keeping clothing and gear dry cannot be overstated. When choosing a daypack, a small to medium backpack made of lightweight, moisture-resistant material that comes with a removable waterproof shell will be ideal. It's also helpful if the backpack has convenient access to a water bottle compartment or can accommodate a water bladder. Plenty of pockets, zipper compartments and hooks are also handy. What to pack: A sturdy but lightweight water-repellant duffel bag with a capacity of about 35 pounds is ideal for the trek to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The bag needs to have room for plenty of layers of breathable, moisture-wicking clothing and layers of fleece clothing, as well as a waterproof layer. To save space, it's a good idea to pack clothing that does double duty, such as pants that easily convert into shorts. Aside from clothing, the climb will also require accessories like sunglasses, hats and gloves, plus equipment like trekking poles and a headlamp, as well as toiletries like sunscreen, insect repellent and a first-aid kit. Support the Challenged Athletes Foundation: Overstock.com and the C.H.E.K Institute are co-sponsoring Erica and Tara's climb to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro in order to raise awareness for athletes with physical challenges who wish to participate and compete in sports. Portions of the proceeds will benefit the Challenged Athletes Foundation (CAF). CAF raises funds to give physically challenged athletes the opportunity to stay active and competitive in the sports they love. To show your support for physically challenged athletes like Erica and Tara, donate now to the Challenged Athletes Foundation for the Fit 4 Kili Climb.
