About wooden needles
Well, i'd like to ask you experienced knitters about wooden needles.

What characteristics make a 'good' wooden needle? I'm asking that because i'm thinking on having a pair done for me - at the moment i knit on plastic needles - useful, but i already snapped one, and they're not very cute .

I should know how to answer that question - because needles are a matter of personal choice - but since i'm a beggining knitter i don't have a 'style' set yet.

Plus, i live in Brazil and have easy access to a number of good local woods (i live practically inside Amazon rainforest - yep, we have internet here).

I'm planning on asking about strenght - so it won't break easily...
