Today I discovered square knitting needles,and I'm never looking back! I'm not sure why, but they are made this way for people with arthritis. I was a bit doubtful, but I've been knitting all evening and my fingers do not hurt a bit! Well worth the extra $$

I've heard good things about them but don't have arthritis yet and my wrist no long hurts while knitting. I'm too attached to my interchangable needles as well. Maybe once I start hurting I'll look into it but that's awesome that they work so well for you. Next time I'm shopping for yarn and a lady tells me she can't knit as much due to pain I'll mention these.

I really think these square needles are neat and think it's fantastic that they work well with arthritic fingers/wrists, but I'm in the same boat as Ilianora.  My interchangeable set is fantastic!

I don't have arthritis (yet....) and I tried them last year at a fiber show and loved them but really I have so many needles already that I couldn't see buying more "just because." And besides, I figured I could get them online or at a LYS anytime after the show ended.

I keep thinking about buying them, but I wanted to get them onsale especially since I had to pay for shipping (none of the LYS near me have them in the sizes I wanted).

Anyway, I didn't buy any during the year and yesterday I was at the same show and decided to buy a couple of the small sizes. They were on sale so I bought 7 (!!) sets of dpns.

I probably wouldn't have bought them because I have a huge box with every size knitting needles plus doubles my grandma gave me, but it so happened I was stuck in the city with nothing to knit! It worked out well now I'm looking for anything I can make with sz 8 dpn because I don't want to use the regulars.   Roll Eyes
