I Do Not Like Them, Sam I Am!

Tried it. Don’t like knitting socks with dpn’s. The end!

OK, not the end.  I gave it a really sincere college try.  There are some folks who insist that knitting socks on dpn’s is the cat’s meow, and I greatly respect their preference.  I can earnestly report, though, that I’m not one of those folks.

Maybe I tried too hard.  I figured that, if I’m gonna do it, why not do it in style.  So I ordered a set of expensive Signature needles size 1 (I also don’t do zero) – the best, right?  Wrong!  While I love my Signature straight and circular needles, those teeny weenie dpn’s are sharp! Ouch kabibble!  I think after 4 or 5 rounds, I drew blood.  No kidding.

Not to be deterred (many told me to throw in the towel, but I’m not a quitter), I switched to bamboo, just before my yarn became blood soaked.  Better, I must confess.  But still not enamored.  I’ve vowed to follow the sock through the heel with my 5 little sticks, then see where I go.  Next up?  2 circular needles.  Who says an old dog can’t learn new tricks.
