Addi Lace Clicks are soon to be in the house!

If you all are anything like me, I was happy that Addi developed their interchangeable system. But I'm a big user of the Addi Lace, so though it was nice, it never really excited me enough to order any for Knitique. Every time I called Skacel to place an order for yarn or their fabulous Addi Lace needles, I'd ask when will the Addi Lace Clicks be available. They weren't sure but they put me on the list. They soon got tired of me asking and low and behold I got an email from Rob this morning letting me know that the Addi Clicks have been developed and they would be expecting an order in April.

So what's so awesome about the clicks:
The addi Lace Click system provides 8 different sizes of addi Lace tips (3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4.0mm, 4.5mm, 5.0mm, 5.5mm, 6.0mm, 8.0mm), five different lengths of our new, extremely pliable blue cord (16", 20", 24”, 32” and 40”), and one connector piece which helps to either store stitches or combine your cords. The Click tips require no tools to change; simply insert the cord deep into the tip, twist and release. The tips will remain secure until you change them, thanks to the Click’s revolutionary locking mechanism!

For those who use certain needles more than others, you can purchase extra cords and extra needle tips for the sizes you use most frequently. I know when I've been on a trip and I start swatching, it always seems like I don't have the size I need. In this case, I'd just have to trade out the needle tips and start another size.
Starting tomorrow we will be taking preorders for the Addi Lace Click System. A $90.00 deposit will hold your set with the remaining balance due when the sets come in. Due to the limited nature of this product we will not be giving any discounts on these Click Systems.

And if you are worried about what cute case you'll be storing these in. I've found a fabulous Interchangeable Needle Case from Della Q, one of my favorite people to do business with.

Here's a little information on her cases
: The case holds 15 tips to allow for the smaller interchangeable sets. Tip pockets are dual numbered! Includes six pockets for your cords and a zip pocket for connectors.

US 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 10.5, 10.75, 11, 13, 15, 17
Metric 2.75, 3.25, 3.5, 3.75, 4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, 6, 6.5, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12
These wonderful cases come in Purple, Seafoam, Ocean, Pink, Green, Brown, Red and Mauve for only $36.00. Be sure to pre-order your case when you order your needles.

If you can't come in tomorrow, you can call us at 916.714.7719 to reserve your set today. They will be arriving they anticipate the middle of April, and I was told, I was one of the first shops to order, so we will definitely get them in the first batch.

Here's to clicking into the future!
