Bryspun Rosewood Needles
Anyone have an opinion on these? I'm trying to decide between Brittany's, which I know I love, and the Bryspun rosewood. They just look so pretty! Any input greatly appreciated! Thanks all!

boyforpele13,
You might want to check out Knitter's Review
They have a review of the Pony brand of Rosewood needles. It might give you some baseline upon which to judge the material, if nothing else.
http://knittersreview.com/article_to...t/040129_a.asp

But you know, if you like wood needles, there's nothing wrong with investing in a pair of something new to see how you like it. Even if you don't love them, you might find you end up with a project for which they are perfect. I have my favorite needles but sometimes, I have to go through the collection of my less popular needles to find the right ones for the job.

Thanks, Marnie! I do love the dark wood color and you are absolutely right about trying something new! I'm going to get them! Now to pick a size.... <teehee> Another dilemma! I was going to get 6's because I haven't any <gasp!> but at the same time, I haven't needed any thus far and I rather fancy the larger needles. Maybe 10-1/2 instead, I don't have any straights in that size. Ordering on Monday, I'll post a review when I receive them.
