Anyone ever wanted to attempt this:
I am-with #3 DPNs and some Lion Wool. It's actually not that bad once you get past the join and first round and making double sure you keep your yarns straight.
Except for one thing-I couldn't for the life of me do the cable cast-on she described without wanting to chunk the whole thing, so I got to thinking why couldn't I do the continental cast-on on one needle with both yarns without extra hands? So I did-it just requires casting on one stitch, dropping that yarn, picking up the other yarn and casting on the other stitch and keeping them separate just like she does with her knitted cast-on without all that flipping back and forth of the needle. I also found that it was much less stressful.
So, after a few false starts, where I had to fix some crossed stitches, I am now on my way to a pair of socks done on DPNs, although since I only started yesterday, I'm only into the ribbing, but since I've gotten things straight now, things should go faster. Since I'm a continental knitter I finally found a way to control both strands of yarn with my right hand without getting them confused or making me want to pitch the thing again.
If I had a camera I'd take a picture, but I don't, sorry. I'll be keeping a running dialogue of my progress either at my LJ or my blogger-probably both.
