What's your preference for small diameter knitting?

I'm a magic looper. I just really do not enjoy working with DPNs at all, and I wanted to like them.

I do ML, but I rather like 2 circs as a concept. I just keep losing the 2nd circular needles.

I haven't used ML yet. I just made an I-cord using DPNs.

I use only 1 needle while doing ML, right now I'm working on glitten using ML. I will use DPN while finishing hats & i-cords

I use magic loop, I hate double point needles. I have been doing everything on circulars lately, I just find it easier to hold the needles. (left handed, but I think I was taught to knit right handed?!)
