So i have found myself sitting down to work on socks, mittens and wrist warmers this holiday season, and i’m getting frustrated with the magic loop method i used to love. i just hate that i have to wrestle with the cable each half of the sock. all i want to do is just knit and continue knitting. i never minded double points, just liked that the setup row was easier with the ML…but with the dpn’s once you get that first row set, you just knit…which i think is the bee’s knees. i also liked that with ML i could set it down and not worry about dropping stitches as much…but with all those cute dpn holders, i won’t have to worry about that either (feel free to suggest some here as well!).
anyway, i got $10 from my swap partner towards some new needles. now i need to decide if i want to get the harmony set of dpns or the nickel.
for those of you who have knit on both, can you tell me what the differences are knitting wise? does one set work better for this yarn vs that yarn? i love the look of the harmony, but if the nickels work better, i’ll be fine with those too (i love my nickel options)
so, what’s the scoop?
