you need to, onto a 24″ circ?”

I’m not sure, but of course, since it sounded so intriguing, I had to entertain the notion :)

I had been using a 29″ circular needle but found a 24″ circ in the needle stash.

One round in, I knew we had a winner!

Now, it must be mentioned, the cable on this Addi Turbo is one of the soft ones. I have some that are like fence wire that although they are ok for knitting larger pieces, would never work for the Magic Loop method.

You need to squish it down; both the stitches and loop portions are compressed.

Then you just zip right along!!

Thanks Marg (& EZ!)
