Last summer while on holiday in North Carolina I attempted my first sock. I used KP harmony dpns in a size too large for the yarn 2.25 mm, possibly:
Although I was pleased that I learned how to do a toe using short rows and a provisional cast on, I knew it was way too loose to be wearable.
This past Sunday a group of fellow students and I got together for some craftiness - and four of us were knitting socks. I picked up a couple of pairs of smaller circular needles from KP over the holidays, having just learned how to do the magic loop in December. I'm using a size 1 circ now and although things are still a bit loose, overall we're doing much better.
The only smaller needles I have (a set of sock needles from Joann's at some point in different shades of "0") are dpns, but I still might have to try this yarn (ONline Supersocke cotton) with a set of those, for research purposes. I haven't taken a new picture, but I've reached the heel of the first sock and am working on turning it!
