After a trip to my LYS this afternoon left me frustrated at their lack of needle stock, I am seriously considering adding interchangeable needles to my Christmas List this year.
I’m willing to consider the Addi Turbo Click, but most recently I’ve also discovered that I love the Hiya Hiya needles. As someone who is relatively new to the idea of interchangeable needles, I was hoping people might be able to offer some suggestions of what to look for. I would say that I’m probably an intermediate knitter. Although in the past I would have primarily knit mittens, gloves, and scarves, I’ve recently been branching out into some lace work, socks, sweaters, and other random projects. Ideally I’d like a set that will allow me to find a variety of lengths and standard sizes. I’m hoping to grow with whatever set I purchase. I like the feel of the Addi Turbos and Addi Lace very much, although I love the cord of the Hiya Hiya needles. It would seem that Hiya Hiya does not come in a lace needle like the Addis do? I most recently found that left me at a disadvantage when trying to knit a shawl that had some pretty detailed work to it.
So for those who have used Addi Turbos and Addi Lace, would you say that the Addi Click feels comparable? If I were to purchase the Addi Turbo Click needles, would I be able to use the same cords for the Addi Lace Click needles or would I have to purchase two separate sets? Thanks so much for any help!
