Hi.I was wondering if a person could use a 7’’ inch or 8’’ or longer double pointed knitting needles for making knitted socks ?would it be harder to hold them or does a person have to use shorter dpns for socks?What do you guys think?I am using bamboo wooden ones for making socks and it’s kinda hard around here to get 7 inch ones in some of the stores around here.
What length are the bamboo or wooden ones you’re using? Do you not like working with them?
Hi Salmonmac.I want to use a 7 inch length ones but i have 8 inch length ones.Would a extra inch make a difference?
Give the 8" a try and see if they’re comfortable. So many of these options are a matter of personal preference anyway.
Definitely personal preference. I usually use magic loop, but I have some 5" DPN for small things, too.
