Hi, I’m currently in the market to buy a set of knitting needles to make a pair of two at a time magic loop socks from Silver’s tutorial with worsted weight yarn. I’ve done a lot of reading of this forum, and have decided that I don’t want to get and Options just because it seems like a lot of people have issues, even accounting for the fact that people with issues complain louder than people without issues. It seems like people like Addi’s, but don’t like the tip unless you get the lace, and another group seem to like Hiya Hiya, some seem to think the tip is pointy, others no. I’m just wondering, what is the advantage to a pointy tip versus a blunter tip, and is the advantage noticable?
Also, is two at a time ML socks too adventerous for my 1st set of socks? I’ve never done ML, but plan to practice first, but I’ve made plenty of flat things before.
