cheap bamboo knitting needles

sandra_fergusonAugust 13, 2008

I 'won' an auction on ebay and got bamboo 13" knitting needles...size 0 through 15, ALL for $6.98...with S&H the total cost is $12.98...the only drawback is that they are in the mail from Shanghi and will take 14 to 21 days to arrive...but, who cares? With a price like that I can afford to wait a while. The last bamboos I bought were DP, and even with a 40% coupon at JoAnn's, they were over $4.00. These come from the factory that makes them, so I can't imagine they'll be any different than other bamboos...maybe even the same ones repackaged and sold by others at really inflated prices.

I'll be sure to let you know when they arrive, what I think of them...if they're as okay as I expect them to be, I'm going to order a complete set of DP needles, too..these, along with the 13" and my Denise circular set that Santa brought me last year, and that I love, will take care of ALL my knitting needs!

Sandra, I bought a set of bamboo dpns the same way a couple of years ago and have been quite happy with them. The tips aren't quite as uniform as others that I have bought, but with a little fine sand paper (if I remember correctly, they even included some) they have done the job admirably. I don't think the wait was as long as they predicted. Do let us know what you think of them.

Gosh, I don't remember that they even had a brand name, Sandra. I can check this evening when I get home from work. They did have the sizes lasered into the needles, but I don't remember a brand. I'll let you know. I know I didn't see "Clover" on them, LOL.

There is no brand....they are simply listed as bamboo knitting needles and come from the 8season Knitting shop, on can visit there, yourself, if you're interested.
