I just started mine this weekend after failing to find anything similar for purchase anywhere (I recently lost a pair I had for two years... so sad).
After wrestling with the dpns for a while (not fun), I went online and found a video tutorial for the magic loop technique... soooo
much easier!!! I would recommend at least trying it out before committing to dpns all the way.
I'm very anti-dpn, if you couldn't tell.
I'm using Jaegar Matchmaker Marino 4-ply yarn in black, and I've gotten about 2 inches done so far, which, in my slow hands, is a lot of knitting. So glad other people are making these!!!
