Small diameter circular knitting
What is the difference btwn 1 circular needle and 2 circular needle methods? I just received a Denise set for my birthday and I bought a book on the Magic Loop method. I don't completely understand Magic Loop yet but I have not had the chance to try it yet. The 2 needle method seems very confusing.

I agree, Amy's circ videos are the best.

I was really hesitant to try the two-circ method because it sounded sooo complicated...but the video is fantastic.

I tried the two circs from Amy's video too and it was not confusing at all! I think maybe also easier than dpns because you can't have stitches fall off as easily or drop the small needles.
