Treats in the mail

Becky at Skacel came good on her offer: This week I received a parcel from Skacel containing the replacement ball of Austerman Step, in a different colour, as requested.

She also included these needles which appear to be Addi needles - but are gold coloured rather than the usual nickel. Anyone have any idea what these are? I'm not complaining either way.

When I got back from New York this was waiting for me:

and unlike the wool that usually arrives in the mail, I didnt buy this myself. This is a gift from Ingrid and is from The Knitting Goddess (the dyer - not Ingrid herself - although she may also be a Knitting Goddess). It's fingering (4-ply) weight cashmere in the Brown Owl colour. My problem now is deciding what to knit with it.

I think those are the addi lace needles with sharper tips. A lot of people like them. Can't wait to see what you make out of that pretty cashmere fingering.

Those are Addi Lace needles - and they have much sharper tips, and they are FAB. I love mine.
