I have a question. I wonder if you can knit hats using the Magic Loop method. I have not used it before, but would rather try the Magic Loop with my interchangeable needles in different sizes rather than buying all those double points and circulars in every size imaginable! Am I crazy, or is this possible? If so, is there is any special knowledge, or do I just jump in and try it? Thanks for any info!
Oh, Vicki!! You're in for a wonderful surprise! That is the absolute beauty of interchangables and magic loop. You can do pretty much anything and everything. Saves a lot of dollars and storage space! Have fun and let us know how it goes!
Thanks so much for the feedback and the encouragement! I've looked at the tutorial, but didn't know about the video. I'll get busy and let you all know how goes. I've been wanting to try 2-at-a-time, toe-up, Magic Loop socks too! The list just goes on and on..... :) If I can knit a few hats and socks, maybe my stash won't look so daunting! Thanks again for your help. --
Hmmm...... Do your boys help you count? Mine love to call out random numbers to try to confuse me, especially when I'm knitting lace! They also love to sneak their hand onto the ball of yarn and hold tight when I try to pull out some yarn. Aren't boys fun? It was a real eye opener to me since I had 3 sisters and a brother. What a different world boys are! They just don't seem to get the love of fiber. And, yes, mine are all grown!
Hey, Knit, what can I say? They still think it's a riot. Good thing I have a heavy duty ball winder, because every time No. 2 son hits the door, his hands immediately start twirling it. Maybe that's why all my other ball winders broke. Maybe it wasn't me after all! RRGG
