Have you ever tried magic loop? This might be a solution. Though it looks like you already know how to use the 2 circs method.
Then number of stitches workable on a 24" circ will depend on gauge.
I ordered my first order from Knit Picks, a Zephyr Set and a View Sizer.
Should be getting it in a few days. So excited!
That's what I plan on doing along with making sure the connectors work right after I open the box.
Also, the NPs and Harmonies Sets are in my Wish List. Mwuahaha!
Must own them all! LOL!
