If you get tired of searching for a lost needle you might want to learn Magic Loop. It's all I use now.
Thanks Jan! I just started knitting back in November and really haven't finished many things yet. I've done a scarf, a sofa pillow and these hats as FOs. I usually make a start and then have to rip it apart a couple of times to get it right. I'm not fast, and I don't have a great deal of time to knit. But then, speed is not the point of my knitting at all.

The baby blanket is a slow go, but hopefully it will be a treasured comfort item for my granddaughter.

I'll check out the Magic Loop and give it a try on the next hat I do. I'm learning as I go. The hats were a first with DPNs and a new (to me) cast-on method, the double cast-on. Having a choice between DPNs and another technique is cool.
