I played a bit today with magic loop and think I'll give it a serious try for the next baby hat. I'm using Denise interchangable circulars and the cords are a bit on the stiff side. I tried it with some very inexpensive (but much too short) bamboo circs just to get a feel for how it worked (total of 16st). I like it, but will definitely need something with a larger loop even for a newborn sized hat! My stitches on the 'ends' of each group are much more loose than the rest so I'll need to do some practice to get the tension consistent, too.
