I'm new to this sock thing (for months I was one of those 'socks look too hard' people too!) so my first real pair I'm working on now are with worsted weight, size 6 needles. Which is fine now that winter is approaching, but I know eventually I'll want to try socks on smaller needles. It's just those tiny needles look so intimidating!
I have a question: for those of you who knit socks on small needles, do you use bamboo dpns? I normally like metal circular & straight needles, but I'm loving the wood dpns. It's just hard for me to imagine using wood needles that small, because I feel like I would break them! Has this actually happened to someone, or am I just imagining things? Should I start investing in some tiny metal dpns?
