Magic Loupe = 2 circulars?

When given directions for socks using 2 circular needles, can I substitute 1 circular and use magic loupe? It looks like they’re essentially the same technique and I’m trying to avoid having to buy even more needles, having just purchased the Options interchangeable set plus fixed circulars # 1-3. Plus, I really like the magic loupe method.

Here’s a tutorial on how to do two socks on one circular needle. You can purchase a small metal connector from Knitpicks which will connect two or more of their cables.

Yes, using magic loop or 2 circulars is just a method, they both knit things in the round.

Experiment with it. If you don’t like it, you can always rip it out and do something else.
