Yes, they really are easier on your hands, enabling you to knit faster and longer. Designed ergonomically in order to decrease stress and strain. They are perfect for knitters who have arthritis, carpel tunnel, tendonitis, or generall stiffness. Your stitches will not slide around and your stitches will be more uniform, especially if you are using a slippery/fine yarn or are a tight knitter.
