Double pointed needles and sock knitting

So I've put off learning to use dpn's until winter break because during the semester it seemed so daunting to teach myself something new.

So tonight I pulled out some dpns (3 size 6s, and 1 size 5, whoops) and using Silver's Sock Tutorial taught myself to very basically use dpns.

I didn't get too far when I realized I hadn't been maintaining the k2p2 ribbing--I was just starting with k2 on each needle! Whoops!

Anyway, thus far it is frustrating but it *is* getting easier.
