I tried it round the neck and after I figured out I liked it, I bought the knitting pins. But Jan hit the nail on the head coilless safety pins are a good substitute, and make fantastic stitch markers.

Otherwise if you have a brooch with a hook shaped curl in it, that would work too. I got one of Andrea's pretty silver decorative knitting pins because I forget to take my pin off and am tired of people asking if I'm going fishing.
