I use brittany double points exclusively for socks. I love them, but the #1 5" needles just at not up to snuff, they bend so much that they break. I will continue to use larger sizes, but will not use #1 or 2's again.
I am relatively new to knitting and found these to be super easy to work with because they let the yarn glide but are not too slippery that I lose control. I also love that they are made of renewably sourced wood right here in California, USA.
