Needle Troubles

Have you ever had a project that you really don't like, but you've passed the point of no return, so you just obsessively work on it so you can finish it and put it behind you?  Well, that's been me this week with my latest pair of Jaywalker socks.  Don't get me wrong, I love the Jaywalker pattern and I absolutely love the Felici yarn that I'm using for these socks, it's just the needles I selected for these socks are all wrong!

These nickle plated dpns are really pointy, which is actually awesome for this stitch pattern, and I admit that I work faster with the smooth nickle needles than I do with wood.  But they are SO heavy that they pull on the stitches and create wicked ladders.

Also, one time I accidentally stabbed myself with them!  Ouch!

In conclusion, these needles probably have a place somewhere, but they are just no good for socks.  Remind me not to use them again!!
