this expresses just what I find when watching the magic loop... I haven't actually done it. I might if I need to, but I think it would be hard to not have gaps in there, would't it?
DPN really are ok. Don't fear them! Just do it!

with ML I can not immagine that it will be easy to get an even knitting on all stitches. You are pulling on them a lot, aren't you?
