I just bought a circular needle to test knit with. It is from Clover Takumi bamboo premium. Its not the addi turbo i wanted but it was only $7.00. vt_shua is right, just buy the Addi turbos in the sizes I use the most. Ill take that advice. I do have one big Question" How in the world do you get the cable to relax, Its all coiled up. I did try running it under hot water and it relaxed a little bit but not much. Any way this has been an up and down day. my artisan arrived, my friend wants me to knit a poncho for her, thats why i bought the circ needle. I was going to start the poncho tonight but it might take abit to relax the needle.

What is your preference. When i first started, I bought all aluminum needles from 1 to 10. It is what walmart carried. I hear that the bamboo is the prefered needle of choice. What is better about the bamboo over the aluminum?

I finished a pair of felted mittens last week and gave them away to a friend on her birthday. The pattern is in the latest Knit It! magazine - though I used Lamb's Pride instead of Lion Wool (perhaps I just identify with lambs more than lions?) They were very simple to make and even fit man-sized hands!
