Update on my DPN worries. I finally got the nerve to try DPN's and even though I did it wrong, I can say I did it! I managed to patch things up so that it wasn't ruined and hopefully, I will knit this hat again and get it right next time. Good thing is I got the feel of DPN's and got over my dread.
Had to do some frogging but I count this as my practice piece and pretty much conquered my phobia. I march on!
Thanks to all,
