I wonder if this type (two at a time) on circulars would be easier for me. What do you think for my first socks?? I even have some patterns for this type of socks.

I have to say that Magic Loop takes just a bit of getting used to, but once you get your head wrapped around it, it goes quickly. One long needle is certainly easier to manage than four or five dpns.

I think that the key for you might be selecting a thicker yarn...maybe using worsted weight. Then, you'll use bigger needles and probably have an easier time of it.
