    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.

    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.

          Comments about Colonial Needle Company Rosewood 8" Double Points:

          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.

          Comments about Colonial Needle Company Rosewood 8" Double Points:

          These are beautiful and durable. I love them. I can work faster with them but they seem to have enough "grip" to keep the yarn from constantly sliding off when I don't want it to.

          Delivery was right on time.

          Comments about Colonial Needle Company Rosewood 8" Double Points:

          The taper of the tip is very pleasing to me, small enough to be useful but not weapon sharp. Not used to looking at my yarn on dark colored needles, this takes some adjustment, esp with dark color yarn. The unslippery surface is either good or bad depending on your yarn and work style. I have not used these enough to be certain how much they will warp in use, but I hope it is less than bamboo or birch.

            These needles have a beautiful warm look and feel in-hand. The stitches slide along easily. They're not quite as sharp as I typically like (I like my needles quite pointy), but are about the same as most needles not specifically marketed as being sharp, and can be easily adjusted with a bit of fine-grit sandpaper and beeswax. I have yet to find a yarn that doesn't look gorgeous on them. I absolutely love knitting with these needles!
