        Comments about Lantern Moon Destiny Rosewood 40" Circular Needles:

        I love rosewood needles,the ultimate in luxury knitting. The circulars are sturdy and the needle part is longer than cheaper circulars. the connection is smooth for fast no friction knitting. 40 is a good length for most baby blankets which I seem to be making a lot of these days.

          The bump where the metal attaches to the plastic line is horrible. It very hard to move the yarn over the bump. I was using very thin cashmere.

            I am making a spiral baby blanket and the yarn glides smoothly over the needles for faster knitting with no friction.

                Comments about Lantern Moon Destiny Rosewood 40" Circular Needles:

                This product is beautiful but it won't work for me. I am a fast knitter, used to nickel plated, sharp needles. Wood is too blunt for me. Also yarn does not slide as easily on wood as on nickel plated needles. The worst feature was that a worsted weight (category 4) yarn would not slide easily up the juncture of cable and Rosewood needle - I had to pull and push every stitch on the needles. This needle/cable join has to be a gradual smooth one so that yarn moves easily. If you compare this cable/needles juncture with the Nova nickel plated circular needles, you will see the Nova has a longer, gradual juncture from cable to needle and yarn slides easily, smoothly. Finally, I saw no improvement in avoiding cable tangles although these cables are supposed to be constructed to be tangle free because they swivel at the needle base. I did not experience tangle free knitting, the swivel worked but had no effect on my tangles.
