A while back I had some tendon issues in both hands. After seeing these needles on an Arne & Carlos podcast, I gave them a try and fell in love with them. They are light weight yet sturdy. The light color makes it easy to see and count stitches with "fuzzy" wool, especially while watching TV or whenever the lighting is not all that great. The rounded tip is also nice for some of the bamboo sock yarns that tend to want to split a bit more. I have been using these for about two years and still happy with them.
I got the 2.5 sized, and I am truly loving them. They're too small for them to be 'ergonomic' in helping the hands not hurt. But! I do love the slight bend/flex they have when knitting in round. I want to ding by half a star because it feels like they will break easily, that may be due to them being the smallest size. Using Metallico fine & Diablo with these DPNs.
So easyvto knit with these needles...I can't knit with 35cm needles but these are 20cm and really does the job I have RAand these needles are a godsend
These are my favorite needles. My hands don't hurt as much when I use them.
I have not started anything that I need to do on 4 needles but I am looking forward to giving them a try!!!!
