The magic loop technique is very well known & is a favorite among knitters. Although it's a great technique, I have not been very fond of it. I find the pulling & pushing of the cord & needles cumbersome & time consuming. In addition, I sometimes have a ladder at the sides which I don't have when I am using dpns. So for small projects & sleeves, I always rely on my favorite dpns until yesterday .....
It's really MAGIC & I love it. There's only 1 loop & there is a little pulling of the cable but no ladder at the start of the round. I just can't believe my eyes as I knit round & round. Maybe some of you have already discovered this technique but if not, give it a try. It's definitely better than the magic loop !
This is a hat that I cast on last night & I am knitting away on the travelling loop. It's so much easier than the magic loop. I was so excited last night that I could not put the knitting down & I knew that I had to spread the word around.
Happy travel looping !
