I know this is from an old post but I wanted to share my thoughts. When I first learned to knit, I had such a hard time with the cheap plastic and metal needles. Then, I tried Brittany's and I loved them! Whenever I teach a friend to knit, I always make sure to let them use my Brittany's because I know they won't give up as easily as with the slippery metal ones. They are around $7 a pair, but they come with a 5 year guarantee and are made in the USA. I know that not everyone has that kind of money but personally, I think if you're starting out and wanting to learn to knit you'll probably have a better enjoyable learning experience if you don't use cheap stuff.
