THE ROAD TO 'CLICK BLISS':
Here's a bit of advice for discovering and loving the world of interchangeable addi Turbos:
The join addi uses for the Clicks is very similar, but not precisely identical to the prototype joining mechanism we originally saw. We found that, at least for us, there was a bit of a learning curve before our hands caught on to how to use the joins. This is similar to learning to knit, but much, much faster and easier. After playing with about 3 sets, the few problems we had encountered disappeared, and the Clicks became everything we wanted them to be.
Here's what we did that paved the way to Click Bliss:
- Read the Click insert instructions and take especial note of how the cable insert needs to relate to the tip opening.
- Grasp the cable insert in your dominant hand at the point where the cable joins the metal insert - in other words, so that you are holding both cable and insert simultaneously. We can't really explain it, but this position seems to allow a much easier hook-up.
- Gently insert, push and twist - Bob had more trouble than I did because his hands are so much stronger. This is a case where somewhat less is a lot more.
- Once you have connected the cable to the tip, tug gently on the cable to make sure all is secure before casting on. I was fooled a couple of times while I was still getting a feel for the way the needles worked (this is brand new knitting technology, after all), so I absolutely recommend this last step as a way to avoid knitting sorrow, at least at the beginning.
- Once accomplished, cast on happily and enjoy the smoothest and best interchangeable knitting ever developed. (That join is a work of art, pure and simple!)
