Hi Everybody--This is my first post here 8)

I was just mentioning over on FaeryCrafty's site that I had come here and viewed the video on Magic Loop knitting. I think it's going to change my life! I don't like DPNs for some reason; they feel unweildy to me and I just would rather not have to deal with them.
I cannot WAIT to try the Magic Loop technique. I have the Boye Needle Master (just got it for Christmas, actually, from my DH).
Once I try it, I'll let you know if the cords are too stiff or if they're okay.
One thing I'm wondering about. Let's say I'm knitting a hat in the round from the bottom up, and I'm at the point at which I'd normally have to switch to DPNs. Can I just begin the Magic Loop technique then, or do I have to start the hat at the top?
I am so excited because now I might never have to sew another sleeve seam. Yay!

Great site you have, Amy. It's really wonderful.

Welcome Yvonne!

Glad you like the site!

Yes, you can just start using ML at any time, although you'll have to switch to a longer cable to do it. (With the interchangable needles this is easy: just use your cable joiner, and slide the work onto the new cable!) Then, to begin knitting, pull the cable out from between two stitches, on the opposite side of the last stitch you knitted. Then slide the knitting up, as in the video, to begin knitting.

That's great, I hope you love it! Let us know!

Amy

The answer is YES! I just learned the magic loop method thanks to Amy's video and I'm using my Denise Interchangeables. It would be easier with a smaller cord but these are very doable.
