There’s still a struggle in my mind going on about using DPNs to make one sock at a time or using two circular needles to make both socks at once. It’s so nice to have both socks finished at the same time, and they’re both exactly the same. But, it’s relaxing for me to use DPNs and not have to deal with two balls of yarn at once. Even putting them in separate bags, there’s still some amount of twisting and paying attention that has to be done. To me, using the DPNs is just mindless and keeps my hands busy with no effort at all.
This week, I’ve worked on the salmon colored socks on the DPNs. I will get back to the green socks on the two circular needles.
I probably say this on every sock post but I love this yarn. It’s Djinni Sock by Dragonfly Fibers. The color is Peach Melba which is not currently in stock at The Loopy Ewe, but that’s where I got this. The yarn is 80% superwash merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon. It’s a very tightly twisted yarn and not fuzzy at all.
What’s on your needles?
