Didn't know what to expect with these as I had never tried them before. I have never owned a pair of wooden needles before. I usually use metal/ nickel plated. But I always use circular. These are really wonderful. They're just a touch less slippery on cotton yarn compared to the nickel plated which gave me more accurate guage. And they're really beautiful! Soft flexible cords... Smooth join. Perfect! I want a pair in every size/color!
This yarn is nice. I've used it several times. Has a nice sheen, soft, washable. The reason it doesn't get 5 stars is that it is pretty splitty when knitting with it. But I've had beautiful end results.
I am just realizing these are my first wooden needles. I have been knitting for years and usually use steel. Maybe I am comparing apples to oranges but I am in love with these! So comfortable and lovely. Great points, so smooth and pretty. They are my new stealth needles since there's no clickety clack like the metal ones. I want some in every size!
