I’m just trying out a new circular Addi 2.5mm Lace Needle. I have other lace needles from Addi and have enjoyed using them a lot. I know they’re supposed to have a coating on the tips for more “bite”, but this set seems almost sticky at the tips (the rest of the needles seem fine), and I’m having to use effort to knit just to get the tips to slide past each other smoothly.
Is there such a thing as Addi’s with too much tip coating on them, and what do you think I should do about them, if anything? Will it wear off on its own, do you think?
