Christine had got her AddiCrasyTrio from knitspinweave run by Tracy Henwood , one of our fibre artists, in the Clare Valley. The Clare Valley is one of the beautiful food and wine areas of South Australia. Christine had loved the German sock needles ( Strickspiel) she had got at the Bendigo Sheep and Wool show and showed us how great they were a couple of weeks ago. They had helped her to be a better sock knitter. These addi needles, though, had improved on that and Christine was so delighted to be able to show us how easy it was to knit socks on them . We had fun pronouncing all the German and Maria, born in Germany, was probably sitting there fainting at our efforts but you have to start somewhere with language learning and if it’s to do with yarn, we’ll learn!
Christine loves these needles and how they make knitting so easy. Dana Gervais reviews them here. The handspun alpaca is making beautiful socks with beautiful colours and the addi needles are making Christine a happy sock knitter. As with anything, if you find the right tools for yourself , you really improve your chances of success and satisfaction.
