Another Addi Addict

I cast on the felted Button Hole bag from the Mason-Dixon Knitting Blog on my brandy-new size 15 Addi Turbos this morning. This was after I divided up each skein of my Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride worsted weight in the vibrant colors of purple, yellow and lime green into 2 equal balls for each skein so that I could knit this project with 2 strands of the same color yarn. By the time this was done I was quite eager to get on with the knitting show, if you know what I mean. Well . . .I knew I would like Addi Turbos. I knew they would be exceptionally smooth and slick and super-fast. I knew I would feel oh-so-special when I used them. Here’s what I didn’t know: that I would want to immediately replace every circular needle I own with an Addi Turbo! Geez-oh-man but these needles are amazing!!
I restrained myself (slightly) and only ordered 3 new addis from Knit Witts. I need these to start the felted bag from Fiber Trends and also to knit any future booga bags. Good-bye, forever, Clover Bamboo Circulars with the sticky spot where the join is. To quote a line from one of my favorite movies, this is the start of a beautiful friendship.

  1. Carole, the bag colors sound great. My 12-year-old daughter is the “owner” of the turquoise/brown bag I knit. She chose those colors, and she loves the bag! By the way, next time you need to double-strand, you can just knit from both ends of the skein. I’ve done this several times and it saves time not having to divide the skein. Good luck on the bag!

  2. Carole, I just discovered your blog today, and I just discovered Addis today too. I couldn’t agree with you more -most awesome needles ever…
