Thank you for this tip! I've always wanted to try this technique, but I don't have the $$ to buy two sets of my needles. I just got the Denise set for my bday - now I can't wait to try this!

I also thought that when a pattern calls for binding off loosely, I would try exchanging my Denise needle tips for the next largest size or even larger (though I have gotten used to the suspended stitch bind off).
