Another pair of socks on Curved DPNs

I started another pair of socks on curved dpns.  This time they are ones I bent myself.  I got past the heel of the pair I was working on with the Neko size 0s.  Here's how that looked:

And then well, this happened:


So a friend suggested I try bending my own using Susan Bates aluminium dpns and the result:


They work beautifully too!  I'm loving them, not as flexible as the original Neko's but not breakable either!  I've got several youtube videos uploaded on how I started these socks.  More to come.

I still haven't tried the bent dpns... I love that you made your own from aluminum straights. :-)

I really like your wood tray in the last photo!

Thanks for joining the revived Fiber Arts Friday!!

Total missed opportunity there! I updated my post to add the source for my wooden tray. Honestly didn't think I'd like it as much as I do! Great for socks!
