I am what some might call cheap. I prefer words like "thrifty" or even "frugal" (got to bring that word back into use).
Knitting is no different, why waste money on name brand stuff?
Right now my favorite sticks (needles) are homemade bamboo DPN's
Recyling a vest for my younger son from third grade into a sweater for his high school senior year. Since he now is 6'3", I added the yarn I had bought at the same time for a sweater for his brother, which I never did knit. The boys chose the yarn, Marr Haven, themselves when we visited the farm near Allegan, MI.
