I’ll come back to that question. But first, a quick update about the WIP.
Once it progressed past the armhole bit, working the body part is easy peasy. It is just a straight st st with garter stitch border. I feel bad doing it, and I kind of wonder if I could have done something about it…
But oh well… It might look simple now because it’s not done yet. Anyway… back to the question… Are you a DPNs or a Magic Loop kind of person?
Me? I am a DPNs person… definitely.
Don’t get me wrong, I do love circular needle. I think they are very practical thing to have, I even think of ordering shorter circular needle that I might be able to use to knit socks. I also love them for a big project where it gets heavy with straight needles. It is very practical to bring them while travelling because it would less likely for me to lose one needle — or drop the stitches as they slide of the needle.
But I have never got around to like magic loop.
Like when working on the sleeves for this WIP for example. I always think DPNs is the best way to do it because I don’t have circular needle small enough for the sleeves.
I do realise though, that DPNs are not a very practical method when you’re travelling. I can’t imagine bringing this on the plane. It is going to be a nightmare, isn’t it? I wonder if it is done properly it is going to be much faster to work with magic loop?
