has anyone used those plastic tubing circular knitting needles sold on ebay to knit a sweater? i'm wondering if they are built sturdily enough to withstand the weight so as not to break when i push the stitches to the wire. they're made a little differently than the ones discussed on the make your own needle forums on crafster. here's a link to what the ebay needles look like. http://cgi.ebay.com/bamboo-knitting-needles-circular-32-US-5-15-U-nitt_W0QQitemZ120132883382QQihZ002QQcategoryZ71216QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem
it just looks like the plastic is shoved onto the needle.
they look like a fantastic price, but i don't want to get them if they'll instantly break on me.

I doubt they are just pushed on (unlike the crappy circulars we have available in New Zealand, where my cord just popped out of the needle and appeared to be just pushed in: I now pull the cords out when I buy them and superglue them in). Also, the seller offers a guarantee/money back and their feedback (many trades) is 100%, so it is probably a good product. I'd have no hesitation in giving them a try myself, considering the guarantee and good feedback on so many trades.
