I've been using metal Hiya Hiya needles lately and I LOVE them. I'm such a tight knitter that I have to stick with metal needles (bamboo grabs too much) and my work slides off these like nothing else. However I've noticed that the very tip of the tips are flat and that no matter how I knit the tip of my right finger (where I've already developed my knitting calus) hurts something awful after I've been knitting with them for awhile. Somedays my fingertip gets red and angry looking and I can't een touch anything with that finger.
My LYS owner and I were wondering if anyone else had experienced this pain problem? All the other needles I've used have never caused this problem an I'm using sizes 0, 2, 4, and 6 in hiya hiya whereas I'm using teensy sock needles in all other brands.
