Dritz Silicone Needle Pullers
Dritz Silicone Needle Pullers - Love these things, especially for pulling slender needles. My hands often get cramped if I don't have some sort of grippy thing on my thumb or index finger. The pkg contains 2 silicone pieces, one Small and one Medium or one Medium and one Large.
The medium fits my thumb and I have small fingers. Room for your fingernail and it breathes well.
