For sure. And I count only 7 needles here. She tells me that at times she has 12 DPNs live and inserted!!!

Looks to me like a knitting disaster waiting to happen. To add fuel to the fire, she says that she does this while watching television. It jus' ain't fair, that's all.

I can control 4 now, but I don't think I could handle that many at a time!

I can't imagine keeping those straight! I just finished my first hat & those DPNs were plenty for me to keep track of.

I know, I know, I know. I can't even think about 12 DPNs being in the same place at the same time.

Linda has been knitting since she was a young child, and both her mother and grandmother are heavy-duty knitters. Growing up, the family spent several months a year in the mountains in Chile, where she soaked up all those knits and purls from the indigenous folks that live way up high.

She is now a professor of linguistics at the university in Satiago, but still knits and knits and knits ... and knits.

Ah well, ....

I had a bad run-in with dpns once . . .

And I bet you thought my avatar was an allegorical statement!
