While swooning over yarn at my LYS last week I came across Square DPNs. I asked the owner of the shop about them and she went on to say that they were “good” for your hands. I don’t know about you, but sometimes when I have been knitting for a little while my fingers and hands start cramping up. Apparently these needles are easier to hold, thus making it easier on your hands/fingers. So obviously, I had to buy some. I actually needed some for another project I am about to start. Yes, another project. That would make 5 projects on the needles. I am unstoppable people! A friend of mine recently told me to “beware” after I told her how many projects I had going on. Still haven’t figured out what she meant by that. I get bored with only project going on. Besides, I just finished two projects, don’t I need to replace them?! It would be unfair to the Knitting Gods if I didn’t.
Oh, they also make circular Square needles. The cord is SUPER flexible which is always nice, especially if you are doing Magic Loop! No, I have not gone back to that silly technique yet.
