About the Bernat cotton...don't turn your nose up at it just yet.... It's absolutely perfect for "market bags". I've done 3 of the Green Living Tote pattern from Lion Brand...and Ravelry has about 3 pages of patterns/projects for them (and that's just the knit ones). The Options make even Bernat cotton knit up easily.

There's also a new (this week, I think) group on Ravelry named Market Bags...I'm still only lurking on it, but it looks like it's gonna have some great ideas.

Update: trying out the AddiClicks tonight, do like, a lot. A LOT. Tons, zomg etc.

However, I still love Options, too, though I vastly prefer the Addi case (much neater system, not the cheapie cardboard thingie like with the Options...)

Turns out my mom gave me the $100 gift certificate to take a beginner class but I think buying good needles is a better way to spend it than classes.

I hate their needle cases, BUT I got this interchangeable needle case and I LOVE it!! Unfortunately she's closed her shop till the end of the year due to a family emergency or something. I was planning on getting some ribbon with numbers on it to cut out and tack onto each pocket. However, I'm not having a problem with which size is which so I don't know if I'll bother.

Here's some other similar ones and I know there are more.

Wow, nice!

I think I prefer the blunter ends of the Addis as they don't make my fingertips as sore, but I bet Options are great for tight stuff like K2together.

Do you agree it was better to invest in knitting shwag rather than in a class? I think I mentioned taking a class before and most were like NO, just watch the videos. lol

I don't think you need a class, you seem to be able to figure out things on your own. If you run into something you can't, there's always us.

The way to stop the needles from hurting your fingers is - don't push the tips! You shouldn't need to unless your sts are too tight; I grasp the whole tapered part of the needle with thumb and finger if I need to move the sts.

I gotta say though that classes can be a lot of fun. I've taken several at my LYS even for things I could figure out. They usually have hints to help you through things, too.
