I am a relatively experienced knitter and I have knit on dpns before - but I've never tried anything on size 2.0mm (US 0). I just started a Dale hat pattern and I feel like a giant knitting with Barbie's knitting needles. The stitches keep trying to jump off the ends of the needles and getting the stitch picked up without splitting the yarn is tough.
Does it get easier? Any tips? Is it worth soldiering on? This is supposed to be a hat for my 2d son due in May.
I am new to this board and I did some searches but didn't find anything like my question. But please do feel free to point me to something I've missed. Thanks!
