I don’t really mind dpn’s, but I love knitting in the round on circular needles, so I want to learn how to do that with socks and other small diameter items. I’d like to learn to knit socks two-at-a-time so both will be the same size and length.
I’m leaning towards using two circular needles, but I don’t like the thought of buying two circs in the same size (sounds expensive). For the two circs method, can I use different types of needles as long as they are the same size? For example, if I already have a bamboo circ, can I put it with a metal circ? Do I need to worry about the cable being flexible when using the two circs method (I can see why it needs to be flexible for the magic loop). I have a set of Denise needles, will those work?
Can you please tell me the pros and cons of knitting with two circs and if it is a major expense to buy the needles?
