Well, actually I didn’t, dusting is DS’s job. But I * did* dust off my DPNs.
And I quite enjoyed using them. No stitch markers needed to work out where to do my increases was a bonus. Slightly more difficult was trying to sit on the floor knitting while a toddler used me as a jungle gym (or a slide…). Yes, DPNs are far more pointy and dangerous using magic loop!
I love these 4.5mm Knitpicks Harmony DPNs. Such a scrummy finish, and delightfully unslidy, which meant the cotton yarn stayed put. Yes, despite the aforementioned stupid decision to knit while supervising Miss Active. So, highly recommended. I have another project that needs DPNs waiting in the wings, so I think I will break out the smaller sizes and abandon the idea of magic looping it. I’m up for a challenge of working with small pointy sticks. I think.
