Thank you all for your encouragement and congrats on learning to use DPNs. I'm SO proud. NOW, I need a very basic, toe-up pattern with explicit instructions for my granddaughter's socks. I know she will love just a plain pair of stockinette socks as the yarn is so darn cute! All the patterns I have found seem to assume the knitter has some sock experience and I have NONE! Someone out there in KP-land can help, I'm sure! Thank you.
