OK, OK, turns out Magic Loop is super cool.  The other night I decided to go ahead and finish the sleeves on the sweater tee I have been working on, Rusted Root.  The pattern called for switching to DPNs in a size that I do not have, so I decided to give magic loop another shot.  I did it and it worked.  Having been successful this time around, I figured out what I was doing wrong.  Since I naturally knit pretty tight, this was my problem the first time around.  It was causing huge gaps.  I decided to loosen up a bit and what do you know, it worked!  I wouldn’t say I am a 100% fan yet, but I am getting there, one magic loop at a time…
