LOL I tried 2 on 2 and did one pair and half the next pair then ask my self why I was struggeling with that when I was not enjoying it? I love my dpns.
My cyber sister decided to see if she could do it and knit two pair on 2 circs!!! She did it and now says she doesn’t have to do it again. She does do all her socks 2 on 2.
After breaking one of my expensive bamboo dpns [$7.95 for 5] I decided to find out what size shish kabob skewers were… I have gotten them in 4 sizes so far. So for about $1 I get 100, break them the length I want, do a bit of sanding finish with some emery paper. Then I put a drop of veg oil in the palm of my hands, rub the new ‘needles’ until they obsorb most of the oil. I rub them off on a paper towel and have my new needles. I have 40 of them finished so can have 8 socks in the works at one time.
Yes you can call this cheap or thrifty or just plain smart!!!
