Proof of Concept…
Published On: December 28, 2017

So I mean yes, it does seem to be technically possible for me to knit with circular needles…

But I’m still finding it deeply, deeply awkward.  But I still fail to have suitable long DPNs in this size, and I still do not want to knit a hat on short DPNs (I’ve done it, it’s pain).  So I’m still pretending this will work.

Tell me it eventually feels less like wrestling with an angry squid?

And in case it doesn’t, lots of lovely folks recommended the needles from Indian Lake Artisans when I posted about this on instagram.  They apparently make awesome needles and can do them in custom lengths.  I’ve placed an order and you can expect a full report when they arrive!

Edited to add:  Don’t worry folks, I totally am magic looping it when I’m actually knitting! I just have the stitches all slid together for pictures/trying on (trying hats on being one of the few places where I’ll grant that circs have the advantage).  I’m not trying to knit with one hat spread out over the whole cable, I promise!
