I have needles of every type, from cheap plastic and bamboo, to high-priced metal and interchangeables. But after buying a few of these they have become my favorites. They are smooth without being slick, and the different colors for different sizes help me distinguish sizes better.
I may just have an addiction to Dreamz needles - I use them on all my projects! Not only are they colorful, they are incredibly smooth and never snag the yarn. I've got five or six different sets of circulars and the quality is consistent across the board. I highly recommend these needles to anyone looking to buy wooden needles - they are the best!
