i dont see myself going back to the store or ordering anything anytime soon, so i guess since i just have one 29", magic loop is really my only option(the only option that doesnt involve buying something else)
i do have alot of question about magic loop though, especially since i've never knit in the round.
for instance do i use a stitch marker for magic loop?
do i follow the pattern exactly, or do i have to make changes?
