aluminum vs bamboo

What is your preference.  When i first started, I bought  all aluminum needles from 1 to 10.  It is what walmart carried. I hear that the bamboo is the prefered needle of choice.  What is better about the bamboo over the aluminum?

Felted Mittens

 

 

I finished a pair of felted mittens last week and gave them away to a friend on her birthday. The pattern is in the latest Knit It! magazine - though I used Lamb's Pride instead of Lion Wool (perhaps I just identify with lambs more than lions?) They were very simple to make and even fit man-sized hands!
