I actually have something new on the needles this week. For my birthday I treated my self to a sock knitting on DPN class. Of course I did forget that there would probably be homework so I have been working like mad to get what I need done by Monday. It is times like these I wish I was a speed knitter because doing the homework has me slacking on my Dear Jane blocks..oh well....
The class has us making these with a worsted weight yarn for ease of learning and speed. I can say thank goodness because I don't know if I would be able to get the cuff (which I did at 1 inch) and the leg done before class if I used sock yarn. I have a little over 7 inches done and I have to get to 9 inchs and then do the heel flap. I was hoping to get the other one started so that I could work on them as a "complete each section together" type thing but my time is short so maybe if I can get this one done to the stop point I can start the other one. Wish me luck.
By the way does it get any "easier" working with these needles. I am getting into a routine so to speak but sometimes I still feel like there is a octopus in my hands. And let me tell you these needles are a little bit sharper than my Addy's cuz my fingers are tender. I sure have been trying not to use my fingertips for sure.
