For you experienced sock knitters out there, do you prefer to put your stitches on 3 or 4 dpns? And why?
Most of the instructions I have use 3, but other resources I've read say that 4 will help minimize ladders.
I am using four, with a fifth as a working needle, but was just wondering what other people prefer. Since I am so new at this, I have no preferences yet!
I was thinking, however, that if I was using three, then I wouldn't have so many needles ends sticking out everywhere. This is very distracting.
