You may be holding the needles too tight, and if you have tight purl stitches that's going to make it harder on your hands to knit into them. Don't wrap the yarn so tight, or if you pull on the yarn after you make a stitch, stop that. Doing the next stitch tightens up the previous one so you don't have to pull the yarn; nice even stitches happen when you wash or block the item, less in how tight you make the stitches.
