addi Turbo Rockets are Here! (Because size DOES matter)

So what's an addi Turbo Rocket?  Imagine taking a classic addi Turbo fixed circular needle and adding extra pointy tips (like the addi Turbo Lace tips) ... the result is fast knittin', and we mean rocket-fast!

The Turbo Sock Rockets came out in February, and have been very popular.  The Sock Rocket needle sizes are US 0 (2mm), 2.25mm, US 1 (2.5mm), 2.75mm and US 2 (3mm).  Then knitters started asking for the Turbo Sock Rockets in larger needle sizes.  Skacel listened!

The new addi Turbo Rockets come in twelve larger sizes from US 3 (3.25 mm) through US 13 (9.0 mm).  The new Turbo Rockets will be shipping next week!

Both the Turbo Sock Rockets and the Turbo Rockets are available in three cable sizes.  The 24" cable will work wonderfully in pairs, and the 32" and 40" cables are perfect for the Magic Loop method (watch Michelle Hunter's video lesson on the Magic Loop if you haven't tried it yet).
Can't have too many socks!

Are the names a bit confusing?  Just remember that the smaller sizes have the word "sock" in the name (addi Turbo Sock Rockets) and the larger sizes don't say "sock" (addi Turbo Rockets) ... 'cause size does matter!

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
