Hope that shoulder's on the mend. Glad it hasn't interfered too much with knitting.

I was debating which interchangeables to buy last week. Here's my thread with pros/cons for each set that I found, and lots of advice from other helpful posters:

I ordered one Options needle to try it and am just about to post a thread about it.
Good luck making your decision!

Hope you're on the mend and good-to-go soon, Evan!

The Addi CLICKS have two styles of casing. The original BIG BOX that lots of folks hated (very non-portable) and the new packaging! Make mention that you want the NEW packaging, if you do, that is!

I mention this because if your closest LYS invested into CLICKS with the BIG BOX, they're gonna sell them regardless. I haven't heard that Addi is allowing LYS's to 'trade in' the BIG BOX packaging for the new, slim, trim, portable packaging!






BELOW: The BIG BOX



Don't get me wrong. It is a nice box, but totally non-portable!

glad you found a pair of circs that work so well for you! I hope you are feeling better by now...

Anyway, I decided I needed a new pair of circs because I wanted to make my mom a lacey-ish cowl and I didn't want to have to deal with constantly moving stitches around on DPNS. My wonderful partner usually sighs and moans everytime I need a new pair of needles, but this time he was eager to please me (might be because I've been somewhat of a meany-face lately). So I told him I'd LOVE to try Addi Turbos and that he'd have to venture across town to my favorite LYS to get them. Much to my surprise he ran out the door!!

Anyway... the point is I <3 them... a LOT!
So my Christmas list has their interchangeable set at the top.
Up until this point I hated metal needles, I'm not sure why, but bamboo always seemed to slide easier (I know that's not supposed to be the case).

Maybe it's the drugs talking, but I just thought I'd give my "hip hip hooray!!!" to Addi :o)
