How I wish that my German teacher had paid more attention in class…
I am after a circular needle. I want an Addi Lace needle. They have suddenly become far more available than previously. I decided that it was worth a look on eBay… sure enough, there are quite a few listed. But wait, what is this? Needle from the US of A – Â£10.86 plus Â£3.05 p&p…. needle from Germany – Â£3.66 (mail for p&p details)
I think that they are equivalent items, but the listing is in German and Babelfish (hey – when did Yahoo! take over Altavista?) is about as useful as Babelfish generally is – and my own German is weak in the extreme.
