Magic loop goes to smaller as well as larger circular needles
I don't knit on DPNs because I don't have anything to tel them apart or at least the beginning one. I am more of a magic loop knitter and I noticed that you don't need very long needles to do magic loop knitting, you just need enough stitches that it divides evenly between the two tips. and have you ever heard of knitting in the round on straight 1 pointed needles. you can find that on YouTube. I thought that was impossible but it turns out it is not.

Sounds fascinating! The inventiveness of knitters never ceases to amaze me. I'll have to visit YouTube to check it out...

Thanks for sharing!

Well butter my buns and call me a biscuit! That was nifty.

Thanks for the link GG and thanks Caters for bringing it to my attention!

Dear Biscuit, that can be used to make really cute little pouches. I never figured out what to do with them but they were really cute. I think it's a variation on slip stitch double knitting, if I recall the video content correctly. My ISP is slow today and I don't feel like waiting for it to load for me to double check. Color me distracted or something or....

GG, I'll cheerfully get to coloring you after I get over the buttered biscuit. That's a oner!
It is double knitting and I found it tedious in the extreme. It's used in the Hoover blanket which is a lovely baby blanket that is fun to make for it's history, but that's all. I tried holding yarn in both hands and finally settled on two strands held in a specific order in one hand.
