Squeee! Glee! My new 3 and 3.25 tips are here! Now I can do this next sweater...as soon as I get the others off the needles, of course... :woot: Wheeee!

Just had to share. My partner can't quite make out why I'm so pleased over getting yet another set of KP tips. :hug: Sometimes, only another knitter can understand... :inlove:

And understand we do!

Yay!


I've been dying for a set of fixed sock size KP's... I've got the DPN's which I love and use but as I mentioned elsewhere, I actually enjoy using both methods of sock knitting at various points on my sock making.

But I've been trying to clear off our debt and don't really feel I should be buying these as I'd have to use Credit card to order...

:star: :star: :star: Enjoy! Knit and be free!

I didn't even realize that KnitPro (the everywhere-that's-not-North-America distributor of KP needles) made 3mm and 3.25mm needle tips until just the other day -- after I'd bought some Addi lace needles for this sweater, of course. *sigh* After some reflection, I decided to buy them anyway...because when I get back to the States, it'll be much harder to buy the KP, it'll be much easier to do the fitting (it's a top down sweater) and because, well, hey, what's wrong with having the Addi and the KP? Especially since I love Addi needles.

Oh, I'm going to be so sad when my money runs out, which I calculate will be dismayingly soon. But at least I'll be able to knit just about any yarn that I can afford then. ;)

hey I was wondering where did you get that from?

I get most of my KP needles (since my local LYSs don't generally carry the Nova, my fav kind of KP Options) from GetKnitted (http://www.getknitted.com/acatalog/Knit_Pro.html). The KP Euro site is here (http://knitpro.eu/Home.aspx).

I note that you can now get buttons made of the same colorful birch laminate as the Symphonie needles -- my first thought was...when I make a bag for my KP interchangeables... :)
