Has any one had experience with Stitchberry needles? They are $3.99 for any size including circs. Free shipping. I just purchased 2 sets of Clover circs from Michael's at a whopping price of $28. I'm thinking of returning and purchasing the Stitchberry bamboo circs. This is the link:

I got some of the double points last week, they are very similar to the clover, the finish on the clover is a little smoother, but I plan to hit them with steel wool and wax them good, then there should be little to no difference. The only thing I like better about the clover is they offer a 7" which is nice. So many times it seems like the 6" is too short and the 8" is just to long.

Thank you Yarn Happy. It really looks like a good deal. I'm hoping the cables are strong and secure.

I purchased the crochet hook set, knitting needles, and circular needles.
the first 2 sets I have used quite a bit and the circs I just received.
I really ike the straights and crochet hooks
And the knitting needles came with 2 sets of #2 and no's, I emailed the company right away and I had the set of 's in 2 days.
Will order more

A few months ago I purchased an entire set of Stitchberry bamboo needles to use for Magic Loop. I've used them to knit mittens and a hat. I like them better than the Clover I have.

Do they have sharp points?

No, the points are not sharp. They're a good value.

I just ordered several of the 60" and 48" circular needles from Stitchberry for $4.99 and several circular needles size 16" for $3.99, I'll let you know the quality as soon as I get them.

If you wanted sharper ones for say lace knitting you could always use some emery paper on them.
Whilst on holiday i broke a needle tip and resharpened it with an emery board from my manicure kit.

My first attempt was with Clover..pricey.......ok, Then I tried Stitchberry......less $ and better, I polish with wax paper. I treally love the Rosewood..........I have the straits, but they don't come in circulars. I prefer wood over metal.

Good to know! I haven't heard of the brand. I bought some wood circulars online at a great price, they were junk. The cables didn't look strong enough to hold a dishcloth. I got what I paid for sadly. I will check these out.

I have never used bamboo before, are they as durable as say the plastic? All my knitting needles and crochet hooks are metal, I have used plastic on a plane before, but gave those away...
