I agree that US 4 is too small for worsted weight except under special circumstances. I'm a loose knitter so I usually use a 6-7, but the suggested needle size is usually 8-9.

I started with bamboo, but now knit with nickel plated/metal. Unless you're having issues with the stitches slipping you may not need to try bamboo, but do get bigger needles either way.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
