I'd be into this - I've found that there's a bunch of places in the states I want to order from that don't ship internationally, and would be happy to get anything from Scotland or that I can get and send it over :-)

I think it's a great idea as well. Although I don't have very much money to spend, and at the moment, I'm swapping with Jeremy, I'd like to do it again in the future. (maybe at the end of the month, when I've got some money left, or otherwise next month)

I was just thinking the same thing! Mine sells them for about the same, depending on size/length...

I just happen to still have the price sticker stuck to my addi 4 mm (US 6) circular needles case and it says Euro 5.65 = $ 7.60 at today's exchange rate. So it wouldn't be worth getting just one (due to the postage), but more than one would make sense! I can ask at my LYS if all their addis cost the same or whether there is a difference in price with the various sizes.

I have my eye on a few american things which I will post about when I have some "funny money"....hopefully soon in other words!

It's great to see that there is enough interest and that we have a place where we can announce when we're ready to do a trade!
