Prym have brought out a range of ergonomic needles. I've bought a couple of pairs of straights and a set of DPN's to try.
I like the ends of the needles. They clip onto the top of it's partner and hopefully should stop stitches slipping off. I wonder if it can be used as a giant stitch holder?

I'm going have a wee play and see how similar they are to my bryspuns.
