Does anyone have a tip for keeping KnitPicks interchangeable needles together tightly?  I've been working on a lace shawl using shadow lace yarn and interchangeable needles.  The needles tend to unscrew a little bit and the yarn is so thin it catches as soon as there is the slightest gap.

No matter how much I tighten the needles they're apart again after a row or two.  Has anyone had this problem and conquered it?

The laughs are always the best part!!!

Let us know if there is still a problem.

I knit a lace shawl for my grandmother with the zephyr needles, and my yarn always got caught in the place where the plastic meets the metal. I love knit picks needles, but two of my zephyrs also broke when I was knitting with them.

I'm a big fan of the nickel plated.
