Oh hello, and welcome to your Makers Minute! I’m Katie and today we are going to be unboxing the Olive Wood Click Set.

So, right off the bat, you’ll notice the first thing that you pull out is the Click set wallet in this brand new olive green color. The zipper in the back houses the three cables for your Addi Click set and your Addi gauge. Turn it back over and open it to find not only your Addi gold heart pin but also some literature about this product as well as your tips. These tips start at a US 4 and go all the way up to a US 11. Just like it’s fixed circular needle counterparts these are also beautifully marbled olive wood. The points are nice and sharp, and they’re very smooth to the touch. For a video demonstrating the correct way to connect your cables to your tips click below.

Another bonus of this product is that the Olive Wood Click Set comes with the signature SOS cables. SOS cables have a split in the cord, so you can thread your lifeline through your knitting without skipping a beat. The 24, 32, and 40-inch cords that come with this set all have that great feature!
