Regia or Opal?

I have knitted all my socks in Regia brand yarn. I like the way it knits up; I can always get the guage to make socks which consistently fit me. These socks are durable and have a long life. All of our yarn shops were munted in the June earthquake so I've lost my Regia supplier. The only way to obtain some more is via the internet.

Addi Clicks in my humble opinion

When I first learned to knit almost 8 years ago, I started out with the usual 2 pointed sticks. Since I am an academic wanker, I had to read all I could find on knitting during this introductory phase. Interestingly, at that time I could find only a couple of authors who talked about circulars and these vigorously maintained that circular needles were the only way to go.

Looks like the Germans are going for the male knitter market.

Baby Patterns

A colleague is pregnant and I intend to do some baby knitting for her. I went to the drapers today and the cost of the pattern books is so dear.

Does anyone have any experience with these needles? I'm looking for interchangeables of good quality (like Addis) but in the smaller sizes.

Sand Lodge Fair Isle Pullover

It's been far too long since I last posted on MWK (in fact, I couldn't remember my nic or password!). I've been busy knitting socks and in-between working on this jumper.
