I have both the harmony bamboo and the nickel ones from Knitpicks. I do better with the nickel but I have a friend who only uses the bamboo. She said it keeps her hands warm in winter! lol The socks are lookin' good and I recognize that yarn as I used it for a pair of socks too! lol

Ask for two sets of chop sticks.
(Round sticks are better, but square ones will work.)
Find a pencil sharpener and some sand paper.
(An emery board will work for shaping/rounding the point but you want some fine grain (between 600 and 1000 grit) sand paper for smoothing the shaft and taper of the bamboo.)
Use the pencil sharpener to taper the ends of the chop sticks.
Round off the points to your own satisfaction with the emery board.
Sand smooth with the extra-fine sand paper.
Wipe off the dust and start using your new bamboo DPNs.
