Knitting Socks Toe-Up and Two-at-a-Time

It’s been a couple of weeks since we’ve had the chance to sit down and catch up here about what we’re working on and making. So, on today’s Taking Back Friday vlog (and continuing on with our Socktober celebration), I want to take some time to talk about the socks I’ve recently finished knitting, as well as the toe-up socks I’m currently knitting using Signature double pointed needles (DPNs) which are new at the studio.

But before we talk about socks, I also want to talk a bit about what happened at Knit City Mini here in Vancouver, plus share the few items I picked up at the show!

If you have any suggestions or tips on how you work with, and handle, DPNs while knitting, I’d love to hear in the comments! And if you’re interested in trying out Signature Needles, we have them available for a limited time in our shop here »

I’ll definitely have more to share next week with weaving projects for my upcoming weaving twill class, plus I’ll talk more about what we learned while filming last week with Laura Fry. There are so many things happening in the studio, and so many more things to share with you. See you next week!

    I love knitting with all kinds of needles, including DPN’s, depending on the yarn and the project. However I do find it pretty easy to drop a DPN while quickly knitting a small circumference project. Sometimes that is just a nuisance, but it can be a real headache on a plane or other moving vehicle. Having lost too many needles to airplane seats, I now use flexiflips for sock knitting in situations where retrieving a dropped needle will be a headache. It may also be a little faster, as you are only knitting on two needles instead of three so don’t have to change needles as often, and flexiflips hold onto the project in a way that DPN’s can’t.
