Oh, my . . I forgot one of the items I was most impressed with about the Addi needles. Where’s my brain? I know . . Vince was home Monday and yesterday . . sick. He went back to work today and I was so happy to have the house to myself and then . . he came home at lunch feeling bad and stayed home. I hope he feels better soon! 🙂
Knitters know the importance of a life line. Heck, I guess all humans know the importance of life lines! With knitting, when we’re doing hard projects, or projects where we might make mistakes, we can run a “life line” through the project and then if/when you have to rip back, the life line kind of holds the spot and it keeps you from ripping back too far and makes it easy to pick up the stitches. Say I put a life line in every 10th row so if I were knitting along and saw a mistake, 4 or 5 rows back, I could unravel back to that point or to the life line, pick up the stitches on a row that I know which number I was on (to keep the pattern going) and then resume.
The new Addi needles have a slot in the cables into which you can slip a thread for feeding a lifeline. If you enlarge the photo and look between the pink lines I’ve drawn, you may be able to see the slit.
Here’s the slit with a gray thread fed through.
And, if you can’t see much through my photos, here’s that portion of the brochure.
Is that handy or what?
