Slogging through an ankle sock made with #6 needles and sportweight yarn. First for me. very slow going compared to a heavier weight yarn and larger needles. Find the smaller needles are a little harder on the hand/fingers too. But did have a set of metal dpns to experiment with in this size.
Now I like metal needles, straight and circular. But find the bamboo dpns allow me to keep a more consistent tension and tighter at the point where the needles join. Where I used the metals ones, I’ve created “seams”. Of course, should I do a pair of stockings, a seam might be just the thing I’d like to have. but not in these ankle socks.
Oh well, still much to learn. Have only been at a few months and there are still many projects and many stitches to go.
