You will find a wide variety of answers to "what kind of needles do you like" Some people like the wood or bamboo needles because they feel more natural or grip the yarn better or are prettier or (whatever) While others will swear by (x brand) of metal needles because they are smoother, don't grip the yarn, pointier, quicker, sturdier, (whatever)
I have a variety of needles and like them all for different reasons. I like knitting my socks on bamboo, but for most everything else I'm stuck on my Options metal needles. I'm considering getting some of the harmony needles in sock sizes, though
It is almost like asking if the people on this board prefer continental or English knitting or if they prefer natural or manmade fibers. We are so varied and yet all so very talented! The nice thing is that I have never seen anyone made to feel bad about using their choices.
