We just received a new kind of Addi Turbo needle called
"Addi Easy Knit"

One of these tips is not like the other...but  there is a very good reason why.

If you have larger hands and struggle with short top circular needles, we have a solution for you. Created
by knitters for knitters, these 10" circular needles feature one short tip to help you comfortably grasp  the
needle while knitting! This innovative product is sure to turn your small project into a big success! But
which tip goes in which hand? Good question. This depends on what feels most comfortable for you  and
your method of knitting, be it throwing, continental, a mix of the two, or your own personal style.

Addi EasyKnit circular needles are:

Lightweight, hollow brass tips-plated for speed and ease.
Standard points for all-around use
Pliable blue nylon cords
Snag- free joints

We used 2 skeins of
Mohawk Wool. On the right is the
reverse of this hat.  
The reverse side of this hat.
How fun! Two hats in one!  
This weeks recipe is from Chris, our

great recipe to use that. Thanks Chris!
