Ha! I know that eventually I will use Magic Loop for most things, but I am "inching" toward it... I have to say that I am feeling triumphant after finishing a hat with DPNs! I was feeling intimidated by DPNs but so many hat patterns use them that I finally attempted it. It was EASY!

That said, I will try the Magic Loop pretty soon. I have sort of used it, but only did "half a loop." My pea-brain is still not completely wrapped around the 2 loop method, but that will come as a natural consequence of experimenting.

And thanks for the tip about the sunstruck needle tips, because they sound even better! i can envision using the colored tips w/ light colored yarns and the dark yarns with the blond ones!
