I've pretty much retired my dpns. With the magic of the Magic Loop, I can make socks, hats, sleeves and for the most part make 2 items at once.
I'm finishing up a pair of long wool pants for my dd and have been able to work both legs at the same time so I know that they will both match and be the same length.
I just finished a baby hat and I didn't have to juggle all those needles and have them falling out of stitches all over the place at the end.
I love Magic Loop!
