Love these needles. After trying many different brands, Lantern Moon has been my favorite over the years. Some more expensive wood needles warp over time. And bamboo tends to shatter or simply wear out over time. Lantern Moon needles have never let me down.
It is such a joy to knit with these - they make you feel very elegant and more importantly, your yarn slides quickly but not too quickly! off your needles! So much better than bamboo and good for those of us who are still a bit timid to try Addi. They have a nice point - better than the dull bamboo needles, so they slide under the yarn easier fewer split yarns.
