These are V-Junkie Socks from the Socktopus book.
I knit these with Addi Turbos. Very sadly, they sprung a
hole... hopefully a future post will be
about mending them!
These are Marilinda socks knit with Addi Lace needles
Last week I went into my LYS to purchase another pair of Lace needles, and what have we here! Addi Turbo Sock Rockets? The smoothness of the Turbo needles combined with the sharpness of the Lace needles? Can it be true?
I asked the lovely sales ladies if they had tried them, and they had not. I picked up a pair and four skeins of Regia sock yarn (on sale! I can't resist) and couldn't wait to get home to cast on. I was delayed by a visit from my sister that resulted in a 2 hour stay at the tattoo parlor, but that was fun. When I did finally cast on, I was instantly in love.
My sister's tattoo!
These needles are the best of both worlds. I can't believe how fast I can knit with them -- the stitches fly! Very lightweight, very sharp, very smooth. Love, love, love.
These are pretty much knitting themselves.
If you like Magic Loop or have been thinking about trying it, I highly recommend these needles.
