Today I was watching videos of Magic Loop knitting on YouTube and decided to try it. I used my 24 inch circular simply because it was what I had out and some Cotlin Yarn from Knit Picks I used to knit a string market bag with. I had less than 1/2 a skein of it left over. I made a small tube of a few rows and bound off . It surprised me that I did it. Now I can make mittens and a hats with out having to seam the sides. I also learned how to place stitches on waste yarn so that it only took 2 short rows for converting to a flip top mitten with out having to knit several rows with the waste yarn. Now I can remake the mittens I am making my daughter-in-law for Christmas.
