That's great! I'm working on sweater sleeves right now using dpns. I'm about 3/4 of the way finished, and I just NOW feel like I'm getting the hang of them!

You must be a natural!

Way to go!! Finally got the hang of DPNs (without ladders even!) after doing the sleeves for my sweater.

double pointed needles--

They're used to make small diameter knits in the round--think socks, sleeves, tops of hats, that kind of thing.

And no, you shouldn't be scared! Watch Amy's video and you'll see that they only LOOK scary :D
