There are times when you, my readers, overwhelm me. Yesterday was one of those days. When I got home from work yesterday, there was a manilla envelope waiting for me. In it was a 2.25 mm, 100 cm (40") Inox nickel plated circular needle. It is a gift from Leslie, who sympathized with my bemoaning the lack of said size in the Addi Turbos.

Thank you, Leslie. The needle will be put to good use. I'll make sure to show you a sock in progress on your gift as soon as I get something on it. Right now, I have a few projects to work on. I'll elaborate a little on those in another post.

For today, well, I start a second part time job. It's an office job. I'll be working for (and with) a friend who purchased a business earlier this year. I'll fill you in when I know a little more.

Pictures and explanations will be forthcoming when I have a little more time. One last time, thank you Leslie!


  1. Oh, I need a 2.25mm circular for socks too. Let me know how you like the Inox compared to Addis. I keep looking for an alternative but am too chicken to actually buy some. (afraid of disappointment) I've heard Aeros are good too, but I would have to order from a Canadian company. I don't think you can buy them in the US.

  2. Hey, Ev, anytime I can do something nice for you I'll try to do so. I hope you enjoy the needles.

    I hope the part time job works out for you - with the housemates leaving, I'm sure the extra cash will come in handy.

    Lisa, I'm sorry, but that was the last 2.25 mm my LYS had in stock.
