I tried it with a dpn at first but it just slipped off the needle so i saw a knit mag with freebie cable needles so i thought why not?

At first, I used dpn's too but then I discovered cable needles shaped like the letter "U"!! They're the BEST (for me anyway) since I don't have to worry about the needle slipping out of the stitches.

What to do? Start the other one too. Nowhere is it written: Thou shalt not start a new bag until the first one is finished.

Of course you can. What if you have two projects? They each need a bag!

Oh boy... You sure can and should if you're anything like the rest of us knitters! Many of us have multiple projects in progress. It's a knitter's disease.
