Addi - Addi Lace Needles
best needles ever 5 out of 5
After trying several circular needles on lace patterns this summer, these were the best. Save your money and buy these first. I used them on 2 shawls by Jarod Flood - one using a silk angora yarn which clung to the bamboo needles and slipped off the metal ones. The Addi turbo lace had the right amount of stick-to-it-ness and the longer point helped too.I also made a shawl with wool yarn and he needles performed fabulously, too. The last was also a Flood design- a blanket that I used a cotton yarn to create a tablecloth. I am now an addicted lace knitter thanks to those wonderful needles.

Cocoknits - Knitter's Block Kit
best needles ever 4 out of 5
I have never blocked my knitted items using pins and blocks so this was a new area for me. I knitted the Rock Island Shawl by Jarod Flood and the finished garment could not be worn without a proper blocking. I bought the kit along with the yarn and pattern. After completing the pattern I found there were not enough blocks to stretch the shawl out so I had to buy another set. My second shawl also needed two sets to get enough square inches to block. After the investment of having bought 2 sets, I plan to use these items often. The sets themselves are good because you can configure them to match the shape of your finished products and they are easy to store. I also hope that they are durable and long-lasting because they were quite expensive.
