I'm looking to buy a set of DPNs (Harmony) and am unsure as to which length would be best.....4", 5", 6"? I hope to be making adult sized gloves and socks soon, just stuck on which ones would work best for that. Can't tell I'm a newbie, can ya?
If you can afford 2 sets, I'd get the 4" and the 6" and not bother with the 5". When knitting socks and mittens and the tops of hats, you'll need the 6". The 4"s are great for glove fingers and mitten thumbs, but keep in mind that they are very small and short and go quickly, so how aggravating is it really to have to deal with longer needles for just that? If you only want to buy 1 size, I'd go with the 6"s.
