The first in our installment of Gifts for Knitters from A to Z is of course, the letter A and we're going to talk about Addi Click Interchangeable Knitting Needles. Interchangeable Knitting Needles are one of the best gifts that you can get a knitter. They are a complete set of knitting needles connected by a flexible cable. Each set comes with a few of these flexible cables in different lengths to accomodate small and large knitting projects. The Addi Click Interchangeable Knitting Needles are some of the most well designed interchangeable knitting needles on the market. They are the only needles with a proprietary connector for the needle and cable, creating almost a seamless connection, which prevents snags while you knit.
The Addi Click Interchangeable Knitting Needles are either metal or bamboo. If you're unsure which kind to choose, check out what kind of needles your knitter prefers by watching them knit or even snooping into their knitting needle stash. If your knitter has more bamboo needles, pick the Addli Click Natura Bamboo, if they have more metal needles check out the long tip Addi Turbo Needles.
Each set contains:
- 10 sizes of knitting needles from 3.5mm to 10mm (US 4 to US 15)
- 1 each of 24", 32", 40" connecting cables
- 1 Carrying Case
Interchangeable knitting needles are the most expensive tools a knitter can have and the Addi Clicks are the best designed of all of the sets of interchangeable knitting needles, so a knitter will be very pleased to discover them as a birthday or holiday gift this year.
You can learn more about interchangeable knitting needle sets in general and other manufaturers who produce interchangeable knitting needles by visiting Knit Luck's Interchangeable Knitting Needle Guide. Their interchangeable knitting needle comparison chart can also be helpful.
If the Addi Clicks are not fancy enough for your knitter, you can go one step beyond and check out the Lantern Moon Interchangeable Knitting Needles in Ebony or Rosewood. Those are all handcrafted. They don't have the same connectors as the Addi Click interchangeable knitting needles, but the ebony and rosewood make for an heirloom quality set of knitting needles that you might want to pass on.
