Circs or DPNs?

I turned the heel on the Black Iris Feather & Fan socks and started the patterning.

This creates a bit of variety in my life. I begin my socks as I do every pair nowadays - with Judy's Magic Cast On done on two circulars. And mostly that's the way I continue my socks. But when I do Feather and Fan on the cuff, I have to switch to double points again. Because they just "fit" my mindset of how that pattern is supposed to flow...18 stitches on each of 4 needles...it doesn't work as well for me on circulars.

Is that weird? Ok...not the first time I've been called that!

Anyway, it's going well...I did a lot of knitting tonight. I'm still feeling my weekend, but I did managed to run the stairs a few times washing new fabrics and a couple of loads of regular laundry that didn't get done on schedule thanks to the cat show!

Someone was pretty ticked that I was so intent on my sock:

It's dinnertime. And there's a new tearstrip, too, Mom. Could you tear yourself away from that sock for just a few minutes, please?

I can understand that. I use dpns all the time, it's just my preferred method, but I also like to arrange the stitches according to pattern.

Poor little Meez, gets no attention when there is SOS going on! :p

Please, Sallee. Don't you realize that Meezer's priorities take precedence?

Cats let you know just how they feel about things, don't they?!

You know, even though I learned to knit socks on 2 circs and love it, there are times when I use dpn's because it just works for me. Whatever gets the job done!

I can see how it would be easier to do the patterning on dpn's. They kinda act like stitch markers! :-D

Namaste

I honor the place in you,

which is of love, truth, light, and peace.

When you are centered in that place in you,

and I am centered in that place in me,

we are one.
