Ever so much more so.

Did you know Addi is coming out with a set of interchangeable needles? Think Denise, but times ten.

Perfect! I was wondering what to ask you to buy me for Christmas.

Those look beautiful! When Vern makes it big with his software, I'll have to try them out. ;o)

I want shan to knit me some wonderful socks since I had to rip the whole damn sock last night.

I love my Knitpicks Options, especially now that the Harmony wood points can be used with the set. Those addi are awfully tempting, though. I can't imagine you're getting coal in your stocking.

Shan said...

Stace, YOU DIDN'T.

Poor, poor knitter. Size issues?

Ames: HA! Well played.

Knitpicks: I boycotted them when they blew me a big raspberry regarding brokerage fees on shipping to Canada. I don't know a single person who owns an "options" needle so I can't try them out, either.

Plus I can't imagine the cables are as nice as Addi Turbos - I have several of the Turbos and the Turbo Lace, and they are unequalled, I am sure. Don't disillusion me, I beg you.

$150.00 bucks !!!!( US $$ to boot - as our dollar is sliding!)
Some day.... I would love to have those needles, after all they ARE Tools of the Trade and it could be equated with the need for, say, a CUT OFF SAW.( Just one of the many important Tools that we seem to need in our world) As a matter of a fact, our Tools are WAY cheaper ...and produce really important warm things to wear while using those other expensive Tools.... hmmmm, I may have a something to work with here! Thanks for the link Shan,
Karen

I want a love button for Karen's post equating the tools :-) That might even be a better price than one of the fly rods around here ....
