I would not worry about Jeff being out of Addis - he is a distributor who just happens to distribute via e-bay.

I agree about the Addis being good for beginners. If I were to tell someone who had never knitted before what to buy, Addis would be the first thing I suggested. The quality makes knitting so much easier!
Beginners have enough to worry about without fighting their needles.

And really 14 bucks average (in the lys) isnt that big of deal.
Thats only 3 or 4 stops at starbucks, 2 or 3 fast food lunches (for one),
1 movie ticket and small drink, 2 knitting mags, 1 cd, 3 skeins cheap yarn...you get the idea. Its easy to think of ways to cut your budget to fit in Addis if you really want them

My first Addi Turbos are on their way to me!
Hubby just went to pick them up at my lys, it was the only place around that had them. Michaels and hobby lobby didn't.
The price made him gasp a little lol
I can't wait until he gets home with them!!
I had to get 2 so I could learn this socks on two circular thing from Cat Bordhi's book I got months ago and promised myself I would not do it until I had addi turbos.
I use denises but they don't come small enough. So "sadly" I had to get addis

Quirky, I like how you think! :rofling:

So, if I don't buy anything at the pampered chef shows I've been invited to, think of all the money I'll save and can spend on needles! :D :XX: I just had a show... and for what I ordered, I could have bought a ton of Addi's from Jeff. I do need to hold off, I am getting that Denise set for my birthday, I think...

I just discover a new knitting store in small town near me ,Acton Ontario. I think my fellow Canadian knitter's will be glad to know that she carrys Addis Turbo needles. And will ship them anywhere. Her website is www.headwaterwool.com Oh and did I mention that they are $12 !!!!. My last pair I paid $20 for. And to all the American knitters, did I forget to tell you that they also ships internatianl !!!! So let me see mmmm, with the exchange rate that sould work out to about what ? $1.50 for you :rofling: I also bought a skein of chucky yarn there, It was only $5 for 100 grams (pure wool). And the swatch knit up lovely. So check it out . And let me know what ya think :XX: Karen

GAH! I think I'll go peruse Jeff's ebay site..I've never bought anything from ebay though.

And Trudy...Ugh. I know all about unexpected expenses and shot budgets. We just got a handle on the $5000 dental bills from last year when our daughter got into the university. :rollseyes:

I told DH that I NEEEEEDED some new needles for a few projects and he said to get what I wanted!

Eventually, you will run out of needle sizes to buy, and then you can return to the large cardboard box you've moved into! :rofling:
