Skacel is thinking of making sharper Addi Turbos if there is demand for them. For details go see Grumperina, she has a letter posted from Skacel discussing this issue, and the letter she sent them. They apparently didn't know that some people believe the needles have dull tips.
Purse updateI felted the swatch, some of the pattern stitches are difficult to see. It may be due to some tension issues, purling in stranded knitting was giving me some issues. The long strands at the back, also distorted the shape, but after trimming these strands the swatch behaved better. The swatch went through the washing machine twice. For the purse I figure I can duplicate stich any potential problem areas, and give it a good look after the first trip in the washing machine. If it needs any more touchups I can do it at that time. I was concerned about the white yarn not felting, but it didn't have a problem.
I'll add photos once blogger starts to behave.
ETA: After 3 attempts over the course of the day - I added the pictures. The purse is moved along farther now.
