Blackthorn DPNS!

Hearing about Blackthorn DPNS on another knitterly blog, I decided to try a set for myself.  What could be cooler than knitting with the same material they use to make the outer skin of the Blackbird Stealth Jet?  Well, as it turns out, my old standards, Signature Needle Arts' DPNS, still reign supreme.  To me, the "stickiness" of the carbon fiber composite slows down my knitting a good bit.  I tried them out with some sock wool and found it hard to move the yarn along the needle.  I decided to switch to a cotton and am having better luck with the Cascade Fixation you see in the picture.  The needles LOOK really nifty though :)
