I will be spending my afternoon with a sick child and the lovely KH videos, trying to figure out dpns.
Of course, the sweater I am knitting requires dpns for the sleeves (I was so confident when I started it that I could figure them out
I started last night...and made a horrible mess within 2 seconds. My sweater is knitted on size 9s, so I just went ahead and bought the size 9 dpns...metal...from KnitPicks.
AWKWARD. That's how I feel. I know I can use two circulars to knit in the round, or magic loop, but my only set of size 9s are currently holding the body of the sweater. I don't really want to put all 148 stitches on something else to make the sleeves, to join them all on that same size 9 circular to start the yoke.
SO...I am going to learn to use the stupid, stupid dpns.
I did it!!!!!!!! Dd is asleep and I took advantage of the time to watch the video and practice. I just cast on for the sleeve and started working in seed stitch. And it's working and thank goodness, the seed stitch hides any ladders (I think there might be one...maybe).
I am a happy girl!!!!
