I didn't. I learned Magic Loop to start with and never looked back. So that's my recommendation to anyone who asks about small-diameter knitting. BUT, I can understand wanting to learn something for its own sake. Try out both methods, figure out which works best for you and do that. But GG's right about just picking 'em up and doing it. There's a collection of videos here under "Advanced Techniques" that demo at least 3 different methods for small-diameter work.
