I am taking a little break from the scarf because my curiosity is getting the better of me with regard to DPNS.
I’m using Silver’s sock class to try and master DPNS. I’m really using the wrong needle size for the yarn and am trying to adapt accordingly. I am using US size 3 DPNS (only ones I have at the moment) with worsted weight yarn so I’m not sure how well it’s going to turn out. Due to the smaller needle size I cast on 48 stitches instead of the 40 recommended for worsted weight with size 6 needles. I hope that works out.
I have some sport weight yarn, but not enough to complete a pair of socks. I’ll save it until I can buy another skein of it.
I feel like I’m all thumbs with the DPNS, but I just completed my first round! I can definitely see why circulars are more popular as these things are very awkward to work with. But I’m going to stick with them and see how it goes.
I’m going to invest in some larger sizes soon as I want to make a hat too.
