Like AnnaT, I just use a similar sized dpn. I don't like the metal ones because they're often too small of a diameter. If I'm doing cables on a #8 needle, those little metal cable needles are only about 1/3 of the size. I slip stitches to it and then the stitches tighten up too much. Dpn's are much more handy, in my opinion. Plus I've usually got tons of them floating around.
