can't get rid of mine, since they are heirlooms from my aunt, she is the same one who is sick, good news, her hair is growing back, so I can grow mine out now, too, and her radiation is over, chemo is half over, and so far so good! I will be so happy to hear that she will be fine, going to need a greyhound bus to weigh me down that day, because cloud 9 just ain't high enough!

I really like Addi's.. Though I will admit I like my Addi lace needles better than the Turbo's. They have a much sharper point than the Turbo's. I have a new set of the Addi Lace Shorts Interchangeables that I really like.
They are really super slick and do take some getting used to, but you don't have to push the stitches along the needles as they just glide..

One of the reasons I like my Addis is because of the slickness! I guess that 's why they make so many different kinds of needles, and it's a good thing they do.

Paulaque, glad you aunt's treatment is going along and going well so far. Good for her and for you for being so close to her.
I have to admit, I'm a big Addi Turbo fan myself even though I'm a loose knitter. I went a few rounds with metal dpns however and they go the best of me. They kept shooting out of my knitting like the ice spear out of the gutter in Christmas Vacation.
i switched to bamboo dpns.

My gripe with Addi's 16" circulars is: the stalk (needle tip) is a teensy bit too long, and it's hard to bend it around tip-to-tip for flat knitting or circular knitting. So combine that with the slick surface...you're killing your hands.

I much prefer the Knit Picks Harmony 16" set circs. The stalk is a bit shorter, the cable is a bit more flexible...no fuss, no muss.

That said, whenever I can...I avoid the use of 16" circs for small diameter knitting in-the-round. I prefer the use of 2-24" circs for knitting in the round.

Others prefer magic loop (not me) or dpn's (not me).

It's completely a matter of preference. No right or wrong.
