I tried, I really tried, for 2 days I tried......over and over again....to learn to knit with double pointed needles.
I had to go to Youtube to find out how not to have all the stitches on one needle, I worked really hard to keep the stitches from coming off the needle and I tried to get past my OCDness (I'm claiming that as a real word!) and deal with 4 needles, two of which were in my way continually.
I gave up.
I went to my regular knitting needles.
I need a pair of thick warm socks to wear this winter and I have several balls of partial skeins of a nice thick and nubby yarn. So I'm knitting the tube socks on regular needles and will make a seam up the center of the top, it should be ok since they are so thick.
It doesn't matter that the colors are a bit off, no one will see them but me & family, I'm using up yarn that would otherwise get thrown out. If it works I have some more yarn in larger quantity so the socks could be the same all the way through.
So far so good, I have 2 socks about half done.
