I love my Denise Interchangeable Needle set. I used a short cable for the sleeves and now I'm using a longer one for the body, with the same #7 tips of course. And while the sleeves are waiting to be united with the body at the underarms, I have left the stitches on some cables from the set with the black "buttons" on the ends.
Yesterday I cast on 180 stitches for the body and knitted three inches of ribbing, increasing in the last round to 200. I am hoping that my stockinette/stocking stitch gauge will average out to 5 stitches to the inch - it seems to me that the yarn varies a little in thickness, depending on which colour is wrapped around the grey, so I shall knit on and check my gauge again after the first couple of inches of st st.
