 Almost Perfect

After going through several set, including KA Switch, Dreamz comes as good as it gets for the price and quality. I like the colors and the compact see-through case. The needle size is painted on the each needle. This is great as sizing that are engraved into the needle tends to get my yarn caught if not polished well. I also love how the cable uncoil and rest easy when knitting, and doesn't twist in an annoying manner, like Addi. Cable also goes with KnitPick's tips. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars is that the tips aren't pointy enough for lace and working cables without cable needles (which I always do - don't have a cable needle). Also, I wish the birch wood portion of the needle is longer (it's only 3.25"). The plastic case that comes with is great but it has a VERY heavy "plastic smell". A few days of airing got rid of the smell. Lastly, when first attaching the new tips to the cable, some are VERY tight to screw in. Once it has been "broken in", it does screw on more smoothly. Having said all that, this set it not the PERFECT set for me due to the not-so-pointy tips, but for everything else, it's worth the investment. Would recommend it if you're not a lace or cable knitter.
