This is what someone who is knitting flat on circular needles try to avoid
Well, now we both have something we can share notes about. One of those bolster pillows with towels placed appropriately may just do it, at least for the one I am doing. I am beginning with size 8 needles, and will end with probably a size 6. Actually, I'm wondering if I may be able to purchase a piece of foam (maybe JoAnn's) and then use towels around it? Hmm....
