I love glass needles!! ZOMG! So amazing! I have 2 pairs of circs and I love them. I am pretty open to anything duable. When my needles warp in my grip they get chucked out. (stupid Crystal palace) Oddly enough I like Brittany Birch.. Oh and I have never used any wooden crochet hooks...

I am pretty well stocked tho I can never find anything when I need it...
