colorful loops of daily living
I think it's because your tension is too tight. Relax your hands. Duh.
Sock tension is SFB. Your little slivers of precious, aromatic woods are probably not up to it. Relaxing your hands probably won't help, because (A) you won't be able to, and (B) if you did, you're gauge would be too loose, you'd have to go down a couple needle sizes, and you'd snap those too.I suggest Magic Loop, but you knew that already.
you're = your. It sukcs that i cant eedit coments after postign.
What both of them said. Yes. I have some lovely little Lantern Moon DPNs in different sizes, but I don't use 'em too often. Fingers on gloves, thumbs on mittens, a few yards of I-cord, that kind of thing. For socks, it's Addi Turbo circulars all the way. The teeny sizes may bend a little, maybe, but break? Not even once!
What does this mean, "Sock tension is SFB"?
I think Don is right. Wrong tool for the job.
I'm late to this post. You have demonstrated why I don't use wood DPNs for socks. I use them for everything else, but not socks. I use metal for socks, and those are starting to warp just slightly. Metal dpns or magic loop--sounds like a bit of hobson's choice to me, but YMMV..:)Phyllis
