Thanks love Wink I haven't tried 5 DPNs yet, but 4 works fine for the moment. DPNs are sold in sets of 5 here, so I'll try that too some time.

I can't get used to dpns. Too many needles so the magic loop is my friend. Though I might try to force myself to get used to them.

A pretty easy and fun pattern from Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/circle-socks

Honeycomb stitch is one of my new favorites! I made a couple awesome looking dishcloths with that pattern.

I learned to knit socks with 5 dpns and I really like that method. For baby socks 4 dpns is enough. But I've made friends with magic loop recently... First time I tried I was not impressed. It feels good to have several methods that I can use. Sometimes one is better than the other.

Yay, finished a pair of socks for dad  Cheesy

In progres:


Finished and blocked:

I improvised sock blockers from a cheap placemat  Wink

Size: Eur 42
Yarn:
Patons Kroy
and for the heel I used Steinbach Wolle
Needle size 2,5 mm
For the leg part (circle pattern) I used this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/circle-socks and for the rest of the sock a basic pattern from my Getting Started Knitting Socks book.

I'm not really happy with the cast on; it seems a bit too loose and it curls. So for my next pair I'll probably use the old Norwegian CO. Tips anyone?
