I've been knitting for close to a year. I have knit scarves, sweaters, clogs, bags, etc- I really wanted to knit socks. I tried to use dpns, and I stank!! I just couldn't do it. So.........I learned how to knit socks on 2 circs. All this time, however, I still have wanted to learn how to use dpns. I want to be able to make mittens- I know there are 2 needle ones, but still. I want to be able to knit socks, using a more traditional method- plus I doubt my abilities to translate a pattern from dpns to circs.
Well...................this morning I dug out my dpns, and I DID IT!!!!!! I have had a pattern from Fiber Trends for months, for felted fish. I haven't done anything with it, because you use dpns. I started a fish!! I figure it's a perfect project, since it will get felted, you won't see my sloppy joins as much, since my knitting definitely isn't perfect on these dpns. I'll just keep knitting away though, and I'm sure that by the time I finish the fish, I'll be so much better at it! I am very excited to be able to have done this- I was always intimidated by dpns, and now I'm not!!
