Two different types of needle always tips me off where the beginning of the round is. I always lead off with NP, and finish the round with Harmony.
I'm flattered! Thank you. Actually I prefer using magic loop because I only have two tips to think about. I'm so easily distracted I find myself knitting with the wrong tip and then I have to tink. Sometimes I feel like I'm trying to sort out the arms of an octopus. I don't have a cable to allow me to do ML right now so I had to do two needles. It turned out to be the perfect way to compare side by side and decide which I really prefer. Sunstruck won because I decided the wood is better for me and I wanted the lighter color. I've not done much on dpns but I guess at some point I will need to since I have a habit of having cables and tips tied up in different projects.
