Are you having a dpn situation?

Looks like it's another clear, hot Tuesday Tip Day.  Do you need some help with your double pointed needle technique?  It can be a little confusing the first time you try and a bit awkward.  Once you get the hang of it, or should I say, the knit of it, you'll be wondering why you didn't try sooner.  Here's an excellent video from knittingtipsbyjudy that breaks the process down and takes the mystery out of the whole situation. 

There's also a nice tutorial from KnittingDaily.com called Cast-on without doing the twist!

I hope you have an excellent resource book or fav website to turn to.  Sometimes it helps to have someone show you techniques in person.  Your local knitting groups can be so helpful in these situations.  It's okay to ask for help - pinkie swear.

Stay cool, drink plenty of water and keep your knitting close.

Marg (so happy to learn, love and live in the knitting zone)
