So, I've been knitting since late Oct. and I am OBSESSED!!!   This is the first thing I've done on dpn's, and even though it's not perfect I'm very happy with how it turned out.



Now I just have to make the second one!   Tongue

THANKS FOR LOOKING!

It's sort of a magenta color with some iridescence to it.  It's actually from a thrift-ed sweater that I tore apart.  I think it's a little thicker than a worsted yarn, but I'm not sure what weight that would be.

Don't be afraid, they're not so bad.  I was nervous at first, but once I got past the first couple of rounds it wasn't bad at all.   I read this article on knitty before I started and it helped me figure things out.
