Argh!! I have one pair of size 7's, mainly b/c they were the first ones I saw and I just grabbed them. I HATE THEM!!! Maybe that's why I can't stand knitting with dpn's. I've been using magic loop whenever I can and I couldn't understand all the posts about loving dpn's....birthday is in two days...I must get some good ones!

I must be in the minority. I got a pair of size 5's for a project, and I love them! I love how smooth and flexible they are! :lol:

I guess my problem is the dullness of the points, it's always tearing into my fibers...but maybe I knit too tightly?!

I don't buy my DPN's. I go the cheap route and make my own :rofling:

I kinda like the Lion Brand ones! They're a sort of smooth-sticky combo. :oops: Crappy points though, I agree.
