I love my Bamboo needles, I've knit a bib on my 6 mm's and I'm almost finished on a scarf (So not a lot really) and they are bending in the middle.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is it something I'm doing or just the nature of the needle?

I have had this issue, I was holding the needles too tight but while the needles are a bit bent I found that they are now 'ergonomic' to my own hand shapes.

My metals are a bit like that, but i haven't found that with my bamboos... yet.

heat sweat and pressure
sounds like a recipe to mold the bamboo
it has been like that with mine
and its not a huge thing
when it gets anoying I just hld them against the bend

I have bamboo needles that are curved, too, but I love it. They seem to really be mine!
