View Full Version : Interchangeable Needles ?

04-28-2009, 02:13 PM
I have a set of Boye interchangeable needles and I was wanting to learn Magic Loop so I can try doing 2 socks at a time. Knowing that the cable won't be flexible enough to do so, would it be possible to attach the Boye needle to an Options cable? Frankly, I'm being cheap and don't want to spend more money on something I already have. Any info would be great.

No, they won't fit together.
