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.

OTN: Eyelet Chemise in Handmaiden Sea Silk (colorway: Midnight). Still. And a purple Donegal Tweed set of fingerless mitts, to try out my new Hiya Hiya interchangeable needles.

Latest FO: A shrug for an Anthropologie swap in beautiful Casbah sock yarn, in Cedar, a dark green semi-solid, my own pattern. Also a quick Noro Silk Garden neckwarmer for my friend Aideen, in a vine lace pattern.
