I did my first sock using Magic Loop from a booklet (that included instructions and patterns) . I will look up the name of the booklet when I get home and post -- very good instructions. I believe there is a Yahoo group for magic loop knitting that references the book and also has docs to print out that explain how to convert DPN patterns to magic loop.
I'm one of those crazy people who tried magic loop and then went to DPNS! Not because I didn't like magic loop, but because I didn't find it hard to use the DPNS, and I found it easier to follow patterns as written then to try and convert to a different knitting method. Actually, I"m using the book Sensational Knitted Socks, and she inlcudes instructions for DPNs and 2 circs (alas, not magic loop).
I'll go search for that yahoo group ...
here it is!
