what is everyone's favorite needle?

I was using a "My Favorite Needle" but I misplaced or lost it.  Then I
was using Piecemakers but they don't hold the thread very well.  The
thread would stick to my dry hands and puttl right out of the needle.
Now I am using another brand of 'short' needle, like the My Favorite
Needle, but I can't remember the brand?  Two of them came in a small
plastic box that slips inside a 'felt' bag.  I like them because the
thread doesn't slip out of them as easily.  I do use Curel Intensive
Healing on my fingers if they get too dry.

My DH tried Curel but didn't like it.  Then he tried Gold Bond Ultimate  
Intensive Healing and said that worked much better.  Or, if you want  
your hands really smooth for stitching, try Gloves in a Bottle.  I use  
that whenever I'm working with silks.

HTH!

Away from my stitching, I've been using Carmex. Works a treat after the  
nasty soap they have us use at work. I've done travel stitching with it  
on and it seems to be fine

It's a toss-up between Lance and Tristan Brooks. Both have smooth eyes
that make them easy to thread.

I have to quit reading for a while!  "Lance and Tristan Brooks" with the "s
mooth eyes" sound like a set of twins from a Regency romance novel!!!!!!!!!
! (lol instead of smiley face for Sheena).  Maybe we could (almost) all ima
gine that Lance and Tristan are reading aloud to us while we stitch?

I think John James makes a short needle. Haven't tried them, but I do
like JJ needles in general. My favorite tapestries are the gold ones,
they just seems to balanced, if that makes any sense!
