Try to knit looser, too. It will make knitting more fun if you're not fighting it.
I am so happy with my Sunstruck needles from Knit Picks that I will probably order them in small sizes for socks, etc., of course it will have to be fixed circs. I'd consider the Cubics from WEBS but the stitches don't slide as easily on the squared needles. I do want to try the Hiya Hiyas. I'd have gotten the NP Options but I prefer the sharper tip on the wood needles. I think it must have something to do with the way I put the tip through the stitch, I'm not knitting particularly tight any more.
