Don't be askeered...socks are FUN..remember, u are only using 2 needles at the time, just like regular knitting and socks are so less intimidating than they look!!! I was PETRIFIED OF ALL DPNS...now I have zillions (more or less) of them bc I knit both socks @ the same time
I use 5 dpns when knitting socks, I've found that I pull less at the change of needles with having my sock on 4 dpns...and I so have the 5dpn pattern memorized
...but I work with 4, too!! All in all...it's whatever you prefer as long as you are KNITTING SOCKS
... I'm doing 2 socks on 2 circs next & I may then stray from dpns...who knows....it's okay .... as long as socks are being KNIT....because it's FUN
FYI, this episode
of Knitty Gritty has lots of sock tips...u will find helpful video @ the site & very helpful tips.
