Thanks for the thoughts. I didn't get the chance to get onto the two needles the other night, so this morning I got another cheapo size 2. I got off of the DPNs onto my 2 cheapos and the joins are TERRIBLE! I am hating it!
Tomorrow morning I will be near my LYS and will just go ahead and get a second Addi, probably a 40" or longer, then everything from that point on will be on the 3.0, instead of 2.75.
I should have known I'd end up buying another Addi. Horror of horrors.
