my first attempt to knit with dpns was with aluminum needles, and they did keep slipping out, so i put away that idea for a long while. then i received a set of assorted sizes of birch dpns and they are not so slippery. i also made a set of 5 dpns myself out of cedar (have trees in my yard and used prunings from them) and that is what i am using for the 2 socks at a time. i really like the wood or bamboo needles. linknit41
Hey, those are coming along nicely. Did you do 6 attempts and no other socks completed? That was my understanding. Perserverance! That looks like a pretty complex stitch you have going if these are your first socks. Really nice.
