I think I'm in love...


Smooth. Colourful. Long tapered points. Made from wood. Did I say smooth? And they come in six packs! I'm only about two inches down the first sock, but if these needles hold up, they are on their way to becoming my favourite sock needles ever.

I have also fallen in love with this:

It came in the mail yesterday, ordered from the clearance page at www.paderno.com. It's only 0.8 l (why does that zero look like an o? I swear, it's a zero, I've checked three times now!). You can't tell from the photo, but it's tiny! It fits three eggs to boil nicely, 4 at a squeeze. It's so darn cute! I hate using a large saucepan to boil an egg or two, so it's exactly what I wanted, and a really good deal at that!

yup - love. it started out as plain old lust with those XXX needles, but it turned into love. i have the 6 sock size dpn set and am seriously considering the options circular set.

I am getting the options set. When I'm ready to place my order I'll let you know so you can "piggyback" in on it.

I have the circular set Miss me, and it's the only time I've successfully tried magic loop. I also got some of the wooden tips for the options set, but haven't used them yet. If they're as nice as these dpns, I'm looking forward to trying them out!

I once felt that way about a pancake pan... :D

Ooooh, I do love Paderno. Nice additions to the household!

Thank you Ninja! I just ordered a saute pan off the clearance section of the website as well. What a change for me it is to have pans where the handles don't fall off!

For a couple of months we only had that pot when we first got married. It's the best, almost 8 years old and it's just now starting to look like it's been used!!
Tell me what you think of the saute pan. It's the only thing I don't have (but of course want) from them.
Love all their 'pots & pans' as well as kitchen littles!! Not too fond of their cookie sheets!! I've had two and neither one has been all that great!

I'll let you know what I think of it when it arrives. You can get it right now at clearance prices on the website--$28 I think.
