And they’re a thing of great beauty and utility. These needles have an extra pointy tip that helps lace knitters navigate the many k2togs, ssk, and other detailed maneuvers on super fine lace weight yarn. But non-lace knitters will also appreciate the sharper tip as well – and don’t worry, it’s not so sharp as to injure your fingertips, just sharp enough.
The lace Turbos are coated brass with a red cable, so you can readily distinguish them from your standard Addis. The cable is nice and flexible, and the join is smooth – just as you’d expect from Addis. These needles seem to warm up in your hand a little more quickly than the standard Addis, and they feel just lovely to knit with.
Come get your lace needles today, and be ready for the Lace Style Trunk Show that’s coming later this month.
