Thanks! I was just reading Mason Dixion knitting last night and for their log cabin blankets they do this a lot, so it's good to know!

Sometimes I use a crochet hook....depending on the ply of the yarn, I can get 5 to 10 stitches on the hook and then I just slide them onto my needle. I find this really helps me when I'm doing socks.

That sounds like what I do for socks!

Thanks Sharly! :woot: This could prove to be quicker than my crochet hook! I will definitely try it! I will need to pick up stitches on my KHAKI CABLES cardigan soon! :thumbsup:
