Have you considered circular needles?

I have done one of mitchie's classes and have learnt how to do magic loop. im sure i know how to do dpn's (and mitchie's offered to teach me again :woot: ) so all i need now is an easyish pattern for a child size.

i had a play about on some odd dpns that i have, once that i have 3 3mm and 1 3.25mm and get the idea, just gotta get started now :yay:

thanks for the ideas though
