magic loop knitting? I have a feeling that fixed circs are best for this, but thought I'd ask. Thanks in advance!

The short time I tried it that was what I used.

Yes, it is what I am using now...the 32s work great and 40s would probably even be better depending on what you are doing with them - for sure with two socks on two needles but if you are done one at a time, then the 32s are good. I LOVE Magic Loop and LOVE KP Options - I should clarify that I am using the Harmonies as I don't have the nickel plated but the interchangeables work just fine. :hug:

Oh Yes!!! I have the KP nickle plated interchangables and like them alot!

I am actually making sock Magic loop (ML) with the 32" but I'm going to order the 40" and 47' for doing 2 socks at the same time ML.

Yep, and they worked great for me! I used the 36" length (I think? The longer one that comes with the set anyway) and it was just fine :)

I use my interchangeable (nickel plated) for magic loop knitting all the time.

Hey, here's a question. Are the cords interchangeable between the nickel plated and Options? I'd like to try the Harmonies, and was wondering if I Could just buy a set of the tips to try them.

Yep, totally interchangeable. I've got the Harmony set and then 2 pairs of Options tips. :)

Actually, I prefer them as when I made socks, the thinner cables help prevent laddering.
