Don't like a sweater for a snake? Stuff it! It can be the snake.

I'm not sure how long your tube is, but maybe you could use your remaining yarn (without adding any new yarn) to thread through the loops on your needles and draw the end closed. Then stuff the tube with beans or batting (or both), close the other end, and use it for a draft stopper in front of a door or window.

Then if you're still hung up on knitting a tube, why not do one of the Dr. Who scarves? That should keep you going round and round for a long long LONG time.

That's awesome, Jinxknit!

Hey, Paula! How about stopping now and stuffing it along with something heavy, like rice, and using it as a draft guard for the bottom of a door or window?!

The size 8 circular needles are 29" and the size 11's are 40". I watched the Magic Loop video and also printed out a copy for myself. The video showed me how to do the Magic Loop with one pair of circular needles and looked pretty easy.

Thank you SO much for your help.

Yep, magic loop is always done with only one pair of circs. There is a method to knit with two circs, but it's not called magic loop.

Glad you figured it out!

I will admit, that when I am knitting caps I usually use a 16" circular until forced to switch to DPNs. I find it's really just faster that way, but your mileage may vary.

Ha! That was my suggestion, too, just a few posts up!
