Then I tried socks. I used the dpns and malibrigo yarn. It knits up really nice. I have one sock finished and just have a couple inches to go on the second one. The dpns were really easy. I didn't even get bothered by the ones hanging when they weren't in use. I have had the second one almost finished for several months. I hope when I pick them back up I can remember what I was doing! I would never pay nearly $20 for one pair of socks but at is what the yarn costs!
