FYI --Addi interchangeables
I just got an e-mail on this. Haven't seen them, and don't know any more about it, but I knew there are lots of Addi fans here!

My first reaction was HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Then I looked at the price And I'm disappointed that they're only offering 3 cords and 1 connector.

And I, personally, prefer the naturas instead of the nickel.

But maybe they'll work for someone else I was wondering when addi was finally going to wake up and find a way to compete int he interchangeable market!!!!

too rich for me
i can't imagine spending that much.. if you have been knitting awhile you have alot of needles all sizes. if you are a newbie then you may not know if you will be addicted enough to spend the $$ for those. I bought Denise's early on and still love them.... they also will replace parts with a smile that wear. no charge...

Love Addis but that is too expensive.

To side track, Lisa I love the look of the Romance shawl you are knitting. Is it an easy pattern to knit?

Ummm...yes and no. This is my first large lacy type project, and apparently I can't count to 6!

But, once I got the hang of the pattern, yes, it's pretty easy--so long as you pay close attention! (I started over twice, and have probably knitted twice as many rows as I have to show for it (what with ripping back a few rows, and tinking quite a number of rows).

But once I got past those first 3-4 inches, I've found my stride, and it's going pretty quickly.

If you are a lace knitter at all, it's probably a breeze!

Gorgeous shawl!
Hi, Lisa!

What a gorgeous shawl! It's so cool! I love that it's reversable.

About the Addi's - VERY costly and kind of short on cables.

I have the Options interchangeables and they're awesome. Lots of cables come with the set and they're a dream to use. Cables are very flexible, too, with very little "memory" so they don't snap back to a coiled position while you're working. Perfect for Magic Loop socks!

Thanks for sending the notice about the addi's though. I'm sure lots of Addi-addicts will be interested.

Happy Knitting!

Ruthie

That's an insane price for the Addi interchangeables! I have some Addi's, and I love them. But for $100 less I'm very happy with my Options!

I just pre-ordered mine from DreamWeaver Yarns. I can't wait. Once I got my hands on a couple of pr of Addi Turbos, I couldn't put them down! I have the KP Options (nickel) and Denise - but I can't WAIT for the Addis. Ordinarily, I wouldn't spend that much on myself for needles, but my birthday is next month - so technically DH is buying them for me for my b-day! (I just have to break it to him)

I have a few of Addis and a set of Options and frankly I don't see much difference so I don't imagine they're be a huge run on them at this point. I do know someone who bought them though and she has plenty of Options so I think it's 'because it's there' thing.
