I was just going to suggest the Harlot's tutorial.

Totally cute.  I would love a pattern! Grin

Very cute!  I remember seeing those patterns, but size 0?!?!?  Size 2 feels like toothpicks to me, you are brave!

Those needles are pretty much glorified toothpicks! Wink

Wow, the socks are cute, but more importantly I have a beef with Brittney needles too! I have a very nice pair of US 7s from them, that as I type, are warping more and more with every row I knit.

Maybe I'll send them a letter too, because I'm pretty sure they came that way.

I don't think mine came that way, but I don't know how it happened.  I dont' know that I will use the needles much after this, but they were the perfect length for these tiny socks.  I just order the Knit Picks dpns in size 0-4 and I think I will like them better.   I emailed them and it took a couple weeks for them to respond, but I got the new needles soon after.

I gifted these to a friend of mine  a few weeks ago.  I managed to forget to take a pic of them finished though.  Here are some progress shots.  The pdf has three of the patterns shown in the pick.  I started with the ruffled rib, but it looked funny so I switched to the cable rib socks. 

I broke the tip off one of the needles and one of them developed a curve which still worked but felt weird.  I sent Brittany Needles an email and they sent me three more needles.  I must send them a thank you email! 

Pattern: IK Better-than-Booties Baby Socks cable rib
Yarn: Dale Baby Ull #2203
Needles: 2.5mm dpns

My first socks were Widdershins.  They are toe-up with a gusset heel and do have an option for a cable, which is simple enough.  I posted about them here or you can see them on my blog (in my signature).

I am not sure if anyone else has posted about this so I will.  I was reading Crazy Aunt Purl today and noticed her link to a yarn shop's blog asking for 8"x8" knitted or crocheted blocks in maroon, burnt orange, white, and black to make quilts for victims and their families.  There are more details on the blog.  I intend to make one.  I think it will be a good chance for me to practice combined knitting!

DPNs are not as hard as they look.  You only have to worry about two needles at a time. It possible to knit hats flat on straight needles if you aren't ready for dpns or magic loop.  A pattern I use often when I knit baby hats for our local hospital is

USE SIZE 6 (for worsted weight yarn or whatever makes sense for your gauge)NEEDLES. CAST ON 30 STITCHES



It is a basic ribbed hat.  I hope that helps!

I have been making those dishcloths lately.  Now my swiffer needs one!  Thanks for the idea!
