Knitting with double pointed needles – what should I buy??

March 6th, 2010 · 8 Comments · Knitting Double

I hardly ever knit in the round with DPNs. I love my dozens of circs. But sometimes there’s just no alternative, and I’m always kicking myself for having only one or two sizes at home when I need them. So I’m off to order sizes 0 to 3 online, but there are so many kinds! […]
