Needle Sale at

I just got an email that Patternworks is having a sale on all their needles - 15% off. This includes the interchangeable sets. I thought I'd alert the MWK members as there may be some who are looking to add or upgrade their needles.

Happy knitting from Middle Earth!

DPNs vs two circular needles vs Magic Loop for socks

Yes, I've been bitten by the sock bug. I've been learning how to knit socks using DPNs but I noticed that there is usually a gap where the instep and gusset meet. So, I was wondering if using either two circular needles or the magic loop method would help minimize this problem. Thanks in advance.

Does anyone have a tip or trick of a good way to join the
cast-on ends of circular knitting without the stitches twisting?
