I Love Addi Knitting Needles only . The main reason being the smoothness and the points are just right for me. Specially Addi Click ons with Nickle plated tips.They are just right for me. slick and Fast Knitting. The stitiches slide so well and smoothly and the tips are just right not too blunt and not too pointed. I use the the 6" tips with stoppers for straight Needles. I own all addi circulars and all Click on se ts.. I have the red Heart shped stoppers to fit the cords. I would like same to fit the ends of the Needle tips so I can use them as straight 6" needles too. The Size 15 addi Diamonds are great to make Afghans with double strand Yarn and goes fast.
