The addi-Art '24K' is sure to be on every knitter's holiday shopping list this year. Unique in all respects, the limited edition needle was handcrafted with great patience and care. This once in a lifetime creation features the gleam of 24 K gold. The construction of a needle this special required the utmost attention to detail. Thus, for a single day in the fall of 2014, addi devoted their daily production to focus all efforts on this individual item. Keeping with addi's hands-on tradition of manufacturing, each individual needle was painstakingly polished to bring out the most in the gold. The final product gently blurs the line between form and function, constructing a piece of art, with purpose.
The addi-Art 24 K is a 32" US 6 circular needle for just $99.99. Only 500 sets were made and only 250 of those were brought into the United States. We were lucky enough to place our order early. More than 10% of what's available in the United States shipped to Knitique in Elk Grove, CA.
If you are interested in owning a pair of the needles, please give us a call as once our initial inventory is gone we won't be able to reorder. 916.714.7719
Look to the horizon, as the addi team continues to allow their artistic creativity to inspire additional addi-Art designs. Each design will be released in a different size, resulting in a full set of limited edition needles.

Words with Mel has put out the call for hand knit or crocheted washcloths to be donated to those who don't even have the basic necessities for hygiene, like toothbrush and toothpaste, soap, and washcloths. The initial call for help asked for us to cut up old towels into squares for washcloths, but Mel thought, we can do one better than that. Why not give them something that will not only last longer, but will be filled with love? It only takes one small skein of cotton yar...n to make a washcloth and just a few hours of your time to make one. Stop by the boutique today and we'll gladly help you pick out a pattern and some yarn to get started. Please make sure to ship your washcloths so they will be received by October 10th.
