I Do Wish There Wasn't Already Cat Hair On Them

"Something for me?"

"But, don't you already have needles?"

"How much did they cost?"

"Wow- they look just like your Addi's"

"Ooooh, I like these. No, I REALLY like these." (Back off, Kaity)

"Why is the cord purple?"

Various quotes from various family members. Ya know what, people??? Let me be - all that is irrelevant - I just bought them because I wanted them. There - I said it. Just.Because.I.Wanted.Them.

Everything about these appeals to me. I love the case. I love the nerdy little pockets - a place for everything, everything in it's place. I LOVE the cords. I love the pointy little needle tips. I LOVE the almost imperceptible joins. I love that the cords are purple. I love the shiny nickel finish.

Love, love, love.

And, I haven't even knit a stitch with them yet. It's sure to only get better.

That's it, friends. See ya. Have a great day..... I've got to go play with my needles.... again.

PS - Hi Sis, Hi Nancy.... I know you're there.

OOOH! I'm on a knitting diet otherwise I would have bought these for myself as well. You're so lucky! Let me know how you like or love them after you've had a chance to knit a few things with them.

That much organization, combined with new needles makes my dizzy with joy! Have fun with the circs, and just be glad it's only cat hair that's on them. C'mon, you have kids - I don't have to spell out the possibilities :0)

Purple ink to mark the sizes on the pockets!! I LOVE that. Note to self: buy purple marker. You are going to love knitting with these needles. I cast on for a pair of socks last night with Addis and they no longer cut the mustard for me.

Just what I needed, another glowing review of these needles. I told my husband they would be an EXCELLENT birthday present, but I'm not sure I can wait until September!

Oooh, yes, I want a purple marker too!!! There's even a little holder for it in the case. :) Of course, I know mine are in order by size (yours too, I'm sure) . . . but I'd feel better having the size marked on there too. So fun that we got our shipments on the same day and are equally OCD!!

oh dear. i have been drooling over these needles since they came out, but i can't justify purchasing them since i already have my boye set (plus, imagining the conversation i'll have with dear hubby - "MORE needles?!") =(

I'm drooling right now... It so doesn't matter that I have a bazillion needles. I so want that set.

I just got mine in the mail as well. I haven't gotten to play with them much though because I'm still at work. I ordered extra pockets too, and am going to get some extra cords once they are available again. I plan on keeping all my circs in the case.

I've been eyeing these for a while... I can feel the pull.... Must. Resist.

Awww. Pockets? Now I'm all sad that I didn't get the whole set!

Mmmm, I've been coveting those needles too. But it bugs me that they don't come in the wee needle sizes too. I bet they are realllllly nice, have you tried them yet?

You got family reading now? Hmm, does that mean we have to be nice and clean? ;)

Those look like lovely needles, wish they came in size 1s and 2s. I keep looking at them, I really really like the looks of them...they're so shiny!!
