I discovered square needles by accident. Then I realized that when I used them, I had less hand pain. Then I realized that even those pesky p3tog combinations, that often dropped a stitch somewhere, were easier. I'm hooked!
I love square needles, I love wood needles, I love circular needles with a cable that is soft but not too soft--these are perfect for two-at-a-time, toe-up, magic loop socks. I will be buying more of these.
I strongly recommend these needles. My first set I purchased not knowing what they were, and since then, I have bought almost nothing but them. The square shafts on them make them much easier to hold without excessive pressure, and it is much easier for me to get into my stitches I am a very tight knitter with their sharp points combined with being able to slide it along the shaft of the needle and then into my stitch.
