Never find yourself without the right needle again!
Available in 3 different tip styles, the Click system provides everything you love about Turbo and Turbo Lace needles in an interchangeable set.
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! The Click tips are nickel plated, which produces a smooth rounded edge where the tip and the cord "click" together.*
The original Turbo Click set includes 10 different sizes of Turbo tips US sizes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 13, and 15 (3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4.0mm, 4.5mm, 5.0mm, 5.5mm, 6.0mm, 8.0mm, 9.0mm, and 10.0mm), three different lengths of extremely pliable blue cords (24", 32" and 40"), and one connector piece which helps to either store stitches or combine your cords. The set comes packaged in a black faux leather case with magnetic closures and a zipper pouch to store cords and other accessories.
The Turbo Lace Click set includes 8 different sizes of Lace tips US sizes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 (3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4.0mm, 4.5mm, 5.0mm, 5.5mm, 6.0mm, 8.0mm), five different lengths of 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 set comes packaged in a brown faux leather case with magnetic closures and a zipper pouch to store cords and other accessories. Note: These specific tips have been shortened by 2 inches, to allow for the use of shorter cords (to make 16" and 20" Lace Clicks a possibility).
The Turbo Lace Long Tip Click set includes 8 different sizes of Lace 5" tips US sizes 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 (3.5mm, 3.75mm, 4.0mm, 4.5mm, 5.0mm, 5.5mm, 6.0mm, 8.0mm), along with 3 pliable blue SOS Lifeline insertion Cords** which create 24", 32", and 40" needles, 1 Click connector, and a gold heart pin. The set comes packaged in a vibrant pink faux leather case with magnetic closures and a zipper pouch to store cords and other accessories.
*Please note, this plating is only added to the Lace Click tips and is different from the brass coating on the regular Lace circular needles.
**Unraveling a knitted project is never an easy task, and it often leads to dropped stitches and wasted time. However, knitting with the patent-pending cord allows for the effortless insertion of a lifeline as you knit! To open the lifeline eyelet, simply grasp the cord on each side of the eyelet and press together. Thread your lifeline yarn through the eyelet, and continue working as normal. When not in use, the eyelet collapses on itself and disappears into the cord.
Instructor: Birgit Hesse
Ever wanted to create your own bracelet? Pick from a selection of five different bracelet patterns and make one for yourself or several as Christmas gifts. Use yarn and buttons from your stash (cotton or something with a sparkle) or come a little bit early and we can pick some in the store together – the options are endless and FUN.
What you will learn:
- How to crochet your own unique bracelet using basic crochet stiches
- How to sew on a button
- How to make a “button” hole for your bracelets
- How to weave in ends blending in with the crochet pattern
- How the use of different yarns and buttons change the style of your bracelet.
I will have several samples for you to look at.
What you need to know:
Basic crochet stiches like chain, single crochet & double crochet – previous experience with sewing on a button is helpful but not necessary.
What you will need:
Crochet hook 3.5 mmm (E) – and/or others ranging from 2.5 mm to 4.0 mm (C – G) if you want to use different sizes.
1 skein of Cascade Ultra Pima OR Cotton Classic by Tahiki Yarns
Or you may bring some of your scrap yarns (mercerized cotton is really pretty because of its shine and works well but you could experiment with other fibers, too).
Buttons: Anything will do. Easiest to use are buttons between ¾ inch and 1 inch in diameter.
Other: Thread and needle (to sew on buttons) if you have and want to use your own but I will have some on hand, too.
Written pattern instructions for all five bracelets will be provided in class.
If you have any questions you can contact the instructor before class.
