    I also like using two circulars. And I can use my older, less flexible circs, without having to invest in new ones. Thanks to the late Cat Bordhi! And I want to add: I love Tin Can Knits.

    I always knit my sleeves first, before I do the body. I hate having the whole body of the sweater flopping around as I turn and turn for the sleeve. I also often knit the sleeves flat and seam them, to avoid the round and round altogether!

    I love this part. However, I hate it when I end up with big holes in between the picked up stitches. Thank you for the tutorial though, very helpful!

    Please don’t forget that there is another method for knitting small circumferences in the round i.e. using two circular needles. I have used this method for fifteen or twenty years, since first reading Cat Bordi’s book ‘Socks Soar on Two Circular Needles’. I tried Magic Loop when it became popular and I know many knitters wouldn’t use anything else, but I had become used to the two circulars method and still feel much more comfortable using it.
