Oh so wonderful! Whoever thought of this is just a genius!
A few weeks ago I tried to fiddle a little with it - but without destructions and got sidetracked. Yesterday I tried again....with total success. My biggest issue in sock knitting is that first row on two circulars and not having them twist. I started two separate ML projects - neither one even came close to twisting! I did one on a 32 inch cable and one on a 24 (knitpicks options, for both) and this is so easy and it eliminates the ladders...I am such a convert!
I love my dpn's, but I dont' always have the right size (especially the larger needles) or they are busy on another project. It's a great handy skill to have for those times that you need it. And I know quite a few people who almost exclusively use magic loop instead of dealing with small circs or dpn's.
