Thank you! This is the first time I've heard of the Traveling Loop... It looks like exactly like what I need!

I've never seen the travelling loop before but it's definitely  different than the magic loop method. Here's a video for magic loop:

I use it for hats, socks (two at a time), amigurumi's. Just about anything that has to be knit in the round really. It's just easier than having a specific cable length for the thing you need and if your items varies in size (Like a hat or ami's) then you don't have to change your method of knitting. Super easy!

I love using Magic Loop, but I haven't been able to figure out how to use it for hats because at 29" total the cable is just a pinch too short for me to work with... Traveling Loop looks promising though!
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Discussion and Questions / knitting a hat with 29" circular needles? on: November 24, 2011 02:28:22 PM
I started knitting the Kami Hat with my 16" size 8 circulars, but the circumference is 1-2 inches too small, so I want to switch to larger needles.

I have a pair of 29" size 9 circulars, a pair of size 9 DPNs (who knows why...), and a pair of 16" size 10 circs (which I would rather not use, since I'm worried it might yield TOO large a circumference...).

I know I could definitely restart the hat with the size 9 DPNs, but if there is a way to use the 29" circs, that would be even better. Any ideas?

Thanks! Smiley

How cool to finally find the original source of all the pictures floating around the Internet!

The Tardis hat is hilarious, and I love that you actually made a sonic screwdriver... really impressive!
