You need to have a super long circular, like 48" minimum. I like it except I knit so tight that sometimes I have trouble moving stitches from one needle to another. You can also use the two circular method. It works pretty similar to the magic loop.

I hate dpns, I just have no talent with them at all. As in: I'm a klutz with them, haha.

Ugh...dnps...don't get me started... ><;
I still have no idea how to cast on with those D:

The magic loop is a LOT easier IMO. :D Just split you cast on stitches halfway and knit awaaayyyy!~

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.
My opinions are based on research and experience. Ask for help!

I love it! Trust me, 4 days on a knifty knitter is a lot faster than several weeks on circulars and dpns. :) It looks fantastic, Rachael, and I love the colors you chose.

Nat, I know, I HATED casting on with dpns. What I eventually learned was to cast on all the stitches on a circular and then transfer them to the dpns. Ugh, it was joining that killed me. No matter which trick of the trade I tried, I would get that horrible huge gap.

Looks great! Next time you should try the ribbing brim on the loom.

Anywho- I haven't made much progress with my knit fishy.
I've been super disracted.
It'll get done eventually, I suppose.

I've been working on a baby blanket for about... oh... a year now.

I have... 4m/5f bettas, two cats, one dog, one rat, and a husband... ;]
