Extree Extree Read all about it...

I, my friends, am Magic Looping.



And I have Rebecca Danger's Knitted Monster Book to thank for it.

Her patterns made it worthwhile to me to figure it out. Her directions were as clear as the forty thousand hundred other sets of magic loop directions that I've both purchased and read. The cuteness of her monsters made me want to stick it out. Oh yes, you can do these on dpns but even I, lover of all sticks that are double pointed, saw the tediousness which would ensue- and I wanted to MAKE MONSTERS FASTER!

This was all completed while under the influence of nearly psychotic hormones and I think perhaps both the circular needle and the yarn might have been a little fearful- even with medication.

I believe the key was to have Mr. Sophanne out of the house. While working on our taxes he realized he needed a win/loss statement from the casino. The process of getting this would be expedited by making a trip there. What's a guy to do- especially when he's got some winnings from last time in his pocket?

Magic loop ain't all that hard once you get the hang of it, is it? Looking forward to hordes of monsters!

Congrats! I can't believe you didn't know how to magic loop. You can knit lace. I mean, that's like being able to drive an 18-wheeler with a bad clutch but not being able to ride a tricycle. But either way, congrats!

Casinos give win/loss statements? Just a couple days ago a colleague at work was trying to figure out how to document a client's gambling losses from 2006 for an IRS audit.

I watched a YouTube video on magic looping a few years ago and never looked back. Never drop a dpn, never lose a one of the needles, no need for a circ in every length under the sun -- magic loop is great!
