I just finished my first pair of socks using Silver's Sock class, and I used bamboo #1 needles. I love the bamboo, of all sizes, but these size 1's were like knitting with long toothpicks! LOL Since Silver's tute comes in more than one needle size, I'll be trying size 7's next.

Kristin -- huzzah on starting your socks -- I think I'm addicted to them now.

Do you cringe when people spell your name with an E too? :?
Ack!! It's really you, Silver!! I love your sock tute - I added to the tip jar because it was so great.

Back to the sock fest.

I used the bamboo needles when I started. But the were actually too tight for me - but then I got the Knit Picks DPN's - WHOOO - TOO slippery for socks! Plus they are too heavy - I couldnt do the heel flap becaus the weight of the needles where pulling the sock down. My favorite now is the Susan Bates Quick Silver DPN's. It took alot of trial and error to find the ones that work for me. Everybody has their own favorites - you got to see what works for you,

don't see why not -- they would be lovely and thick, probably, and wonderful with boots. I guess... not having ever knitted that size socks, I don't really know.

I'm using bamboo DPNs right now. I'm in the middle of the ribbing portion on Silver's tutorial.

I vote for Bamboo. I love them.... easy on the hands and as stated above the stitches do not slide off accidently. The only problem I had was bending the needles when I knitted to tightly. Yay for Kirstin's sock tutorial
