is great! I highly recommend starting socks with anywhere from a sport to worsted wt yarn & larger needles (size 5-7). When I wanted to learn to knit socks i tried everything so that I wouldn't have to use dpns...LOL, even 7" circs (RIDICULOUS!!!) Well, I watched this episode
of Knitty Gritty &
it all made sense! When I watched them actually knitting the socks I understood what was going on, then I read & reread the tips in the show notes. There are also a couple of videos on the site that may be helpful. This tutorial
may be helpful, too. I found this article
that may also help.
I was scared to death of dpns, then I practiced & realized that you are using 2 needles @ a time, then I was okay with it.
