So here we have a new pair of socks. I am crazy about making socks this time and it is part of my fun. Probably next month I will be making my own pattern, as I have focus on what I want. I will need to test it and see how it comes along. It is inspired by the fact that I have been making The Brethren Sock. I asked Millard Fontenot if he minded the inspirational pattern and I got a green light. Thank my Brethren.
So here you see my newest acquisition in dpns (double pointed needles). These are Karbonz by Knitter's Pride. They are carbon fiber as I understand it and the feel very nice to the touch. I have not felt that they are week or that the points will come out. They are not slick, yet they are not really grabby.To quote "A revolutionary product!! New-age needles made from High-Tech carbon fiber with tips in nickel plated brass!" They come in sizes from 1.0 mm to 6.0 mm I have to agree with this assessment. These are great dpns and at a great price when you consider the alternatives out there for people like me. What do I mean? I tend to bend or break dpns, no kidding. I give them 2 thumbs up. From now on when I purchase dpns, I will have to consider these babies for sure. Hope you like my review and my work in progress, thanks for stopping by!
