Wherever small diameter circular knitting is needed I try to use the magic loop method as much as possible. :thumbsup:

Always. Don't own any DPs.

I use it all the time for socks and mittens

I use magic loop for socks and am working on my first pair two at once on one circular.

I recently learned how to do the Magic Loop technique. Actually, I just learned how to knit in the round. So for me knitting in the round = Magic Loop. :)

For a newbie like me, Magic Loop is easy to do and I've produced two or three easy projects using this method. So, the results have made me a very happy camper.

I use magic loop on occasion and really like it a lot. It means I can start out with my cast on's - which are always tighter than the knitting so magic loop is really important.
Once I get to the actual knitting, most times I don't have to worry about it.
It's also very helpful for when decreasing...

Yes, quite a bit...although I don't have a preference for Magic Loop over DPNs or vice versa. I'll use whatever works. I find each as fiddly as the other, or perhaps that should be "just as non-fiddly as the other".

There are times when certain tasks are easier without the loops in the way, and other times when too many sticks in the mix are unwieldy. So I just switch if necessary.

Sometimes. I only have one set of dpns that use for other things mostly as they're not a size I use a lot. So I either ML or use 2 circs.
