I have done something stupid! I want to follow Silver's excellent sock making tutorial but have bought sock weight yarn, and size 5 DPNs (confused between UK/US sizes as I am in UK and v new to knitting).
My question is: can I still knit the socks and if so should I follow the instructions for the sock weight yarn or the size 5 needles??
Silver recommends Sport or DK yarn for my size of needle - I guess I'm wondering if weight or needle size is most important?
Am sorry to be such a numpty (great British word for idiot!)
Hope someone can help.
