Consider ordering your circular needles (or, the shortie 10" straights, whichever you prefer) from www.Knitpicks.com
and let the mailman or UPS driver worry about the snowy roads!
Knitpicks have a great wood needle called Harmony. They aren't too heavy. They aren't too slippery. They aren't expensive. You save money by purchasing them in a 'set'....but they are also very inexpensive piece by piece.
IMHO, you'll be more satisfied with Harmony needles (either circulars or straights) than you'll ever be with Clover Bamboo. Their performance is simply wonderful. You can order online, or just call them. They're a very friendly bunch!
