Addi - Addi Lace Click Set - Short
Are these really lace? 2 out of 5 stars
To be honest, I ordered these Addi Lace interchangeables elsewhere, but I felt they should be reviewed. I was ready to upgrade from my Knitpicks because they were getting worn out and I wanted to have an interchangeable I didn't need a pin to change points for. I received a discount code, so I thought it was worth the money to buy the Addi Lace interchangeable short tips. To be perfectly honest, I am very disappoiinted. I initially thought I might not like the short tips, but I am not having any trouble with that. I am VERY disappointed in the tip. It is not much pointier than the turbos which I really don't like. I have only used the turbos for hats in the 16 length. I will probably continue to use my knit picks and try to sell these.

Top Shelf Totes - Yarn Pop - Double
Great idea, but….. 3 out of 5 stars
I saw this bag a couple of years ago and because of the quality of the fabric and the idea, I bought it. My friend did also. Unfortunately, I chose to ignore the comments about the handle. Perhaps it has been corrected, but the handle closes with the zipper and it makes the bag hang unevenly on only one side. If you want the bag to hang balanced off your shoulder, the zipper needs to be open. I don't want that. You can easily lose something that way. Also, once your yarn is through those holes, you have to keep the entire project in the bag. I do not think the pockets for the yarn that are beneath each grommeted hole are big enough. You cannot fit a skein of yarn in those pockets so the yarn moves easily. I no longer use the bag.
