I couldn't believe I had hesitated to try, magic loop seemed awkward for the first eight rounds, then quickly turned into a much loved technique I can not imagine not utilizing. Some of the benefits: You avoid those 'lines' created by uneven tension at the join of your double pointed needles. Your project is far less likely to slip off a needle whilst in your bag. It looks cool. People will glance and squint and finally ask you what you are doing - and how. I am always happy to share. In fact I have become somewhat of an ambassador of magic loop these days, between the class I teach at Stitch Therapy and random encounters with interested parties.
I am excited to share the magic loop experience again this fall. I hope you will be able to join me on this knitting adventure.
