The Soap Opera of the Needles

Pattern: Vanilla Sock w/Hemmed Cuff
Yarn: 2 Windows Dye Company Sock 2
Started: December 19, 2010
Finished: January 19, 2011
Needles Size 0 Hiya Hiya DPN's

This pair of socks ended up being worked on with three different sets of needles.  I started out trying the 9 inch circular.  I really hated them.  I knit for about ten rows and I couldn't take it anymore so I switched to KnitPicks Harmony DPN's.  They were working fine until I broke one.  I know that you get six in a package but I broke one a long time ago so I only had four and I prefer using five needles when using DPN's.  After I broke that needle I switched to the Hiya Hiya's.

Sounds like you are having no needle luck! I'm with you on those 9" circulars......I can hardly do the 12" ones. The picot edge is very nice on these socks.

Send the broken harmony needle back with a self addressed envelope and they will send you another. I've never tried the Hiya Hiya DPN's. Do you like them? The socks look wonderful!
