I decided that I couldn't stand not working on two things at once. I like to have projects I can switch between if I get tired of one. I'd heard a little about the magic loop technique but never tried it for myself even though I saw a video teaching it a couple days ago. It's also a good thing I had a pair of 32" circulars lying around that I didn't know what to do with. So about an hour ago I sat down with them and the first color yarn for my friend's Slytherin scarf and tried the technique after watching the video really closely. It took a couple tries, but I think I've got it. I know I'm still pretty beginner when it comes to knitting, but I get really excited when I try something new and can actually get it right!
Next thing I want to learn is cabling. But right now, cables scare me. XD
