ChiaoGoo makes some pretty awesome needles - I have a couple of their Red Lace fixed circulars, and they are quite lovely to knit with. Yes, I have LOTS of circulars, and I even have an interchangeable set (Boye Needlemasters, which I got from Michaels with a 40% off coupon, which made it super cheap), so why ask for this one? Well, when you knit as much as I do, you can tell the difference.
So, I like ChiaoGoo, and I like the fact that they sell a COMPLETE needle set with sizes 2-15. Other than the Boye set, this is the only other set to carry that range of sizes. They come with accessories and stuff all packed into a sleek little pouch that will fit perfectly into my new knitting bag (that I got for my birthday a week ago =P)

|Large needles. Note how there is an extra row of pockets on both sides|
|The needle sizes are etched onto the tips! THIS IS AWESOME.|
These are obviously not my first needles, and probably won't be my last. (I desperately want some Addi Turbo Clicks! Those are my holy grail needles.) But... like a good car, these will stand me in good stead for years to come.
