I started off with the aluminum 9 needles my mom had.  They were great to learn with.   Cheesy

your projects look great.  my first scarf was a complete disaster.  i'm on my fourth knitting project and it's the felted marsupial tote and it's been pretty easy so far.  it was nice to do something other than a scarf and i didn't think I was ready for sweaters yet.

as for needles, i really like the bamboo needles.  i started with aluminum and it was not happy.  they were so slippery i kept dropping stitches.  it was so frustrating.  i do however miss the clicking sound, it's somehow very reassuring.

Hey all!

I just want to post a shout-out for the Denise Interchangeable Circular needles - I just got a set and they rock!  I got really tired of having to go out and buy different sizes/lengths of circular needles for every single project I started - this set has needle tips in sizes 5-15 and a bunch of different lengths of cord.  So when you need a couple of different sizes and lengths of needle (as I do for the project I'm currently working on) - you've got it all right there.  The needles are plastic and I thought I would have a problem with them, but I find them really easy to work with and very smooth.  I knit the umbilical cord baby hat, the kittyville hat, and a freeform felted mohair pouch on them (all on different size needles) and they performed perfectly.  I ordered mine online at http://www.knitdenise.com - but there's also some sets for sale on eBay last time I looked.  I found out about them on the Knitty site.

for what it's worth, those are my very latest two cents!

I got a set of Denise needles this weekend, too! I love them!!! Highly recommended to anyone who has a hard time finding various circular lenghts.
