If you look at the overall price of $36 for 15 pair of needles, that isn't bad considering that even at JoAnn with a 40% off coupon the price of ONE pair of bamboo dpn's is around $4. What brand are they? I've snapped a ton of size 0, 1 and 2 needles. Only once while actually knitting. The others come from my trying on my socks while only on three needles and the one across my arch will snap. No, I haven't learned yet
I still prefer knitting socks on wood or bamboo though.
