I was sock knitting with a set of bamboo dpns until Buffy the Yarnslayer managed to get her teeth into it.
So I switched over to a set of KnitPro Zing circular needles, however, the yarn was not sliding easily along the needle and the join. I have no idea why this was an issue when I had knit another pair of socks using the same needle but with different yarn.
I stopped in to The Constant Knitter and picked up a set of HiyaHiya 2.5mm circular needles. One can never have too many circular needles especially these sharp pointed babies!
