Don't Step On My Blue Suede Sock!!
I bring you.....(drum roll please)......DH blue sock.....created by MOI on CIRCULAR needles!!
Yippee!! My FIRST circular needle sock!! (DH was so tickled he asked could he put in a rush order for the mate)! LOL!!! I have got to work on my finishing off technique but other than that I am SOOOOO loving these circs!!!! I just don't see me ever making another sock with DPN unless there is some catastrophe and that is my only option.
I was recently diagnosed with osteoarthritis in my hands....specifically the fingers that I use the most for knitting and it really bummed me out!!! I have to admit that working with the circulars was not bad AT ALL on my hands!! When using the DPN my hands would hurt and still be sore the next day but I have not had any of these problems using the circular needles.....guess it has something to do with the way I had to hold the DPN......not sure the reason but as long as I can keep knitting and it not hurt I am all over it!!!! (Thank you Tonni so much for teaching me to make socks on circulars!!!)
