Having recently finished a scarf for the exchange, I have gone back to my abandoned sock. I have ripped it out twice. I restarted it again 2 days ago on #3 circular needles using the Magic Loop technique. Evertryrthing was going fine until I realized that I wanted to knit on the plane ride from FLorida to San francisco. Not wanting to get my Addi Turbos confiscated, I decided to find a pair of plastic or bamboo needles to put my work on for the trip. Not being able to find what I wanted I realized that the only thing left to do was to put my sock on DPN.
I noticed something very interesting since I switched to the DPN. My stitches are tighter and a lot more uniform. What kinds of experiences have any of you had with DNP vs circular needles ( using Magic Loop) for socks?
