Thanks! Do I need all of the cords denise makes (30, 40, 52)? I don't know what all I will knit, but I would rather get them now if I will need them.
I tried on dpns and didn't have a problem getting the joins tight enough, but I find magic loop easier. I was loosing count on the dpns. That is why I think the cable isn't long enough and is pulling too much and making the joins loose on the circular.
