View Full Version : Double Point Needles-I'm DOING IT!!!

I've struggled with this little problem for awhile, the needles just slide right out of my stitches. THen I had the grand notion to buy bamboo ones, and they're not as slippery, and I worked about 10 rows last night without losing a stitch. I'm so happy. :cheering:

Bamboo is definitely the way to go! I've tried steel and plastic and it's a sad state of affairs...

I have metal and plastic ones and I hate them. I need to get the bamboo. :rollseyes:

YaY!!!!!!!!!!! Good for you!!!!! :happydance: Bamboo is definitely my favorite. I think for me it was also a matter of figuring out which needle to put over or under the other as I knit on the two in my hands. Then I had to remember to tug a bit as I began the second stitch on the needle to prevent laddering. Now it is automatic, and it will be for you soon. I used to think I didn't like dps, but I sure do now! samm

Congrats!!! Thank you for the tip!! Just last night I started "trying" with the metal ones and I had to drop the project... I will get the bamboo ones and try again...

Again... Congrats!!! :cheering:
