At long last I am well on my way to knitting my first pair of sock on dpn. It has taken me a long time to master this technique and I am not sure that starting with striped ones was such a good idea. There are a few mistakes and I did spend some time frogging it. But the first is now off the needles and the second well on the way. I think I will probably be doing more of these. Its funny I never believed when people said it was addictive, but I do now.
