I have had this set for over a year and do a lot of knitting so they have seen heavy use. I have only had the cord become separated from the needle while knitting twice and never had any other malfunctions. I always make sure the cord is screwed tightly into the needle before beginning. I love the versatility of interchangeable needles-- it's so easy to go up or down a needle size for ribbing, etc... and to add cord length in the middle of a project in order to try it on. This set is beautiful and well-made. I would highly recommend!

This product has been on my Christmas list for 2 years. Christmas 2010, I bought a set of rosewood needles and a set of the bamboo interchangeable needles to compare the two, as at that time there were not many reviews for the Colonial Rosewood needles.

Upon comparison, the rosewood needles were by far the smoothest and easiest to handle. I found myself working with more projects to accommodate the size needles I purchased.

Christmas 2011, the rosewood needles were again on my Christmas list. I did not receive them and purchased them for myself after the new year. I traveled by plane for business and thought that it would be great to take my needles with me for convenience. Wouldn't you know it, one of each of the two sets I took with me broke!!!! Size 4 fell out of it's metal base. The Size 5 broke in half in my bag!

I've had them for less than 4 months and I had to purchase super glue to continue to use the two sizes I use the most! The joining isn't bad, the feel of the rosewood needles is superb; however, I've been knitting for nearly 20 years and have NEVER had such an issue with any of my needles! I've never had any break before, warped yes, lost yes, but never broke.

It really did disappoint me that I spent so much money on an item that at face value had such great quality.

    Comments about Colonial Needle Company Rosewood Interchangeable Knitting Needles:

    Loved my 6 yr old Colonial Bamboo set, never had a problem with them.
    Rosewood needles slightly pointier.
    2 sets are interchangeable.
    Thin & fatter cords perfect for different size yarns.

      The Colonial Interchangeable Knitting Needles are perfect for knitting many different projects. The needles are easy to connect and make changing needle sizes and cable lengths a breeze. The beautiful silk storage case is well made and easy to travel with. I am so lucky to have a knitting friend who recommended I try these needles. My Colonials are the only knitting needles I currently use.

      Love this needle set. The cables don't kink and attach easily to the needles. The yarn moves easily over the needles and cables. I would recommend these to anyone who loves knitting with wood.

              Comments about Colonial Needle Company Rosewood Interchangeable Knitting Needles:

              These are lovely to knit with - warm rosewood, smooth joins. BUT, I have the opposite problem as others (maybe because of my humid weather?)in that once they are screwed on the needle they won't come apart - ever - not even with a vice grip. I've tried this on several and same problem. So for me, they are very limited and not interchangeable - I should have just bought singles - would have been cheaper.

                When I open the envelope with knitting needles I was unpleasantly surprised by the bed smell.
                First desire was to throw it away because of it. Then I decided to try. After 20 minutes of knitting the smell disappeared.
                Now these needles are my favorite. I can not use another brand.

                  The needles do not seem to stay locked into the changeable cords...and the cords do not easily bend with your work. I am very disappointed.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I emailed about the disappointment I had in my Rosewood Interchangeable Needles. That was over a week ago, and I have not heard anything from the WEBS individuals. I will think twice about ordering from WEBS again and will use another site that other knitter friends use more often. Not worth it.
