Try as I might, I just cannot get the hang of double pointed needles! I have cast-on no less than 8 times and when I try to join the first stitch it keeps sliding off of the needles! I have no idea how you all are able to maneuver those four needles at the same time.
I want to knit some gloves for my mom and I have to use dpn’s for the fingers. I think I might start off with circular needles and then try to switch as I get to the fingers. Hopefully I can at least [I]do that[/I]
