knitting needles

I'd like to take a public opinion poll here. I have both polished aluminum needles which aren't as nice to use as the brushed aluminum needles. Mother asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I told her I've always wanted a nice set of needles. Go buy them, she said. So, anyone used wooden ones and are they worth the upgrade? What would you buy if you got offered such a fine present?

Personally, I do not like the wooden ones... But, then again, I haven't treated myself to exotic wood ones (bamboo, teak, or whatever), as I've always deemed them too expensive... I really haven't given much thought to whether the needles I use (usually brushed aluminum) are good or not good, and whether some other kind would be better... Now, you've given me something else to brood about! :-)

Hi from Singapore, Lenore! I always use wooden needles -- I find them much more pleasant to work with than metal. My favorites are made by Lantern Moon, but I also like the cheaper bamboo needles.
