Thanks dakatzmeow, that does make sense, in fact I have just completed one baby sock on dpns so now I know a little more of how it all happens. It was a little frustrating to start, so I just practiced first and made lots of mistakes, then when I felt a bit more comfortable with the dpns I started the sock. One thing I didn't like was the starting- joining it all up and the first few rounds.

And then there's my Daughter who knits socks & mitts using bamboo skewiers. She says they measure in at between 1.75, 2.00 and 2.25 MM.
When knitting with them you only need one pointy end and you can have dozens of needles in a bag from the grocery store at a buck or two.

You will have to cut them down to about 6" or so...

She started using them when I got a panic call from her, the Cat had chewed on one of her Bamboo needles and she needed to finish a present. I had been playing with my skewers and told her to try it.

You may have to polish them with a brown paper bag, from the grocery store and then polish them with wax paper.
