Olivia - Don't be scared off by DPNs, I only started to use them a year ago after telling myself they were too complicated for me, a relatively new knitter. Well they're not! You only knit with two needles at a time, like regular needles (some stitches on one needle and an empty needle you're knitting with), the others just become stitch holders really.

Here's a hat on dpns I started earlier this year and hope to finish tonight (only 5 rows to go!)



You can see the hat tube on the needles (four of them), and the spare needle for knitting. Mine was 128 stitches divided between the 4 dpns.

Have a go, if (when) you master them you can make gloves, wristwarmers, hats and of course, socks too!!
