Loving Bamboo Needles!
I ordered some bamboo circular needles, mainly because I think that's the only material I could get the 16" circulars for cap-making in. I absolutely LOVE the texture of them and haven't dropped a stitch yet! This is wonderful as I'm not yet that great at correcting mistakes. Just wanted to share that.

I love bamboo needles too esp. if you use dpns... I find them alot easier to work with on socks... although a certain cat was found chewing on my dpn this morning and he damaged my tip .. after I walked out of the room for something... here I thought since the kids were not up my knitting would be safe.. :rollseyes:

I like bamboo, too. My dog ate one of my DPNs though so be careful!

Another happy bamboo user here! My first needles were bamboo and even though I've tried plastic and metal, I still think bamboo is the best!

For finding needles you love!!!

I "broke down" and bought my first set of bamboo dpns when I was starting DHs first pair of socks. Even though I ended up not using them for that project, I absolutely them, even though I'm often afraid of breaking them. I just bought my first bamboo circ, so I'll soon find out if I them as much for other projects too!
