I bought these as I love wooden knitting needles and the only cable needle I had was a metal one. I thought they looked like good value and were pretty. They arrived very quickly and I was amazed at the quality. They are ridged down their length which takes a bit of getting used to but once you are used to them . . . . . The ridges stop the stitches sliding off the needle so you can drop the stitches being cabled whilst you knit the others. The ridges also hold the cable needle in the fabric so you can just stick the cable needle in your knitting when you're not using it and the ridges hold it there - a real bonus if, like me, you're forever losing your cable needle :). The three sizes are good as well, the larger size will quite happily hold cable stitches up to super chunky wool. Altogether a great buy.
