    I must begin by saying that I usually dislike wooden needles. However, these were the only double pointed needles available in the size I needed so I took a chance. I am quite glad I did! I found them extremely easy to work with, very well-made, and with a beautiful finish. I haven't had any problems with splintering, color-leeching, or catching on the yarn as I have with other wood/bamboo needles. They have definitely made me rethink my dislike of wood. I would most certainly buy more in the future, and I am considering trying out more of the Colonial Needle Company's line.

    Caution when you get the needles, I tossed the packaging when received and put them directly in my needle case. When I went to use them later in the day there was a "catch" near the tip of one of the needles. When looking to find the catch, I found a sliver of that needle was causing the problem.

    If you purchase, check them carefully, not the quality I anticipated.

        Needles are great to knit with. I have arthritis & sometimes have difficulty knitting, but these needles are perfect. Had very little pain with my knitting.

          Super smooth and gorgeous. Makes it a real treat to use them. Also makes me want to start a new project just so I can use them!

          These needles dragged. I expected a slick, hard finish and was disappointed. I'll only use these if nothing else is available.

                    I love double pointed needles and have several bamboo sets in smaller sizes that I use for hats and socks. But I keep seeing patterns requiring larger sized needles and I really do NOT like circular needles. So I bought some of these and hope to use them very soon. They seem lovely!

                    The needles seem to be too "bendy". I like a solid feeling dpn when knitting socks.

                        These are very nice needles. They are smooth and the yarn grips nicely to them. However they are very bendy which I found disturbing as I knit. I will have to try them a bit longer, but I am not yet sold on them.

                          These needles were almost impossibly slow and sticky at first. But after a rub down with wax paper and several pairs of mittens I am liking them more and more. No chance they will slide out of the work by accident. And in size US #1 they have not yet warped and bent in my hands. I think I need a couple more sizes!

                          These needles are soft and useful for a lot of my winter yarn projects but they seem to be a little soft and I already have a few marks on them.
