View Full Version : new addi turbos (metal) seem to snag...

Anyone ever have any addis that seems to have a burr on them? The tips kind of grate against each other. Seems just to be on one spot, but I can't feel it with my fingers, only when I'm knitting. Do you think it will wear down?

Should I return them? They're from my LYS.

If I bought them at my LYS, I would totally take them back. Unless they're completely bizarre (we do have one LYS that is soooo odd) they should exchange them without a problem.

I would definitely take them back since Addi have a lifetime warranty!

Your LYS should take care of it but if they don't :!!!: try sending back to

I was going to say.... you might want to email Skacel (http://www.skacelknitting.com/contactus.html) directly. Ive never had a problem with a manufacturer sending replacements.. Denise, Crystal Palace (they sent me 2 DPNs to replace 1 with a splitty tip!) ... I would think that Skacel has pretty good customer service too!

I'd return them, too, either to the shop or email the company. Addis shouldn't have a rough spot--they're too expensive for defects.

Thanks, everyone!

I didn't think that was normal. :shrug:
