A post in which I learn I have been knitting Magic Loop all along…
Oh, this is funny. I spotted a video link to Knittinghelp.com’s Magic Loop tutorial, and decided to watch it. After all, I’m inching ever-sockwards, and should probably know how it works, right?
I’ve been doing this all along!
My dislike of DPNs is probably the only thing that has kept me from becoming a Sock Person — you know the type — so I’ve avoided them even for recommended uses, including the very top portion of hats and the wrist area of sleeves. Instead, I do almost exactly what the knitter does in the video — yank out the extra length of needle cable between a stitch pair and keep knitting. Works wonders for me, although it might drive some more orthodox knitters crazy.
