I actually like it! and hate having my preconcieved notions dashed! I like the short bamboo tips for socks, too. The cord on the stitchberry brand looked iffy so I thought I'd ask.

barb, was it the cable that was complained about on Amazon? I'll see if I can find it to read for myself.

I'd only risk a few bucks if I don't have to pay shipping and was ordering anyhow. The eneedles site is hard to run things down on IME.
I was reading the comment from Leanne on Amazon who bought a set of don't and circular bamboo set. She had a problem with one set becoming blunt & the circular cable broke on her. I was very surprised at that so I checked some other brands out. The woman' name was Leanne.
