Yay, I love Magic Loop as well, and don't use anything else. My straights and DPNs are feeling quite neglected. Except for the one pair my dd is using to learn on.

My daughter, who is 5 years old, wanted me to take a video of her knitting. I thought I would post it here, because she's just so darned cute!
