i am using these dpns to knit the top of the crown of the hats I am making. I've knitted all three of Kate Davies Hats of Midlothian. I find the shorter length makes it easier to manipulate than standard length dpns. Also the sixth needle comes in handy as I can spread the stitches over five needles instead of four.
This is a good kit for anyone wanting to make socks. mittens or small items. The needles are made of warm wood with a lacquer, meaning that yarn moves easily as you knit.
