I bought some rosewood needles after I fell in love with the ebony ones. The grain of the wood seems to make the yarn stick a little more than over ebony. They are expensive (~$17/per set). The tips are rounded and slightly blunt, which I like. They feel very warm in my hands and I feel like I am giving myself a treat when I use them.
