How do you...
How do you leave your project when stopping in a magic loop project...

I guess it is obvious to say your yarn is always on the bottom right...but how do you make it so you know where you left off...?

The cast on tail tells you the beginning. Is that what you mean?

If I am putting something down for a few days, I will write a little note, cover it with tape and stab it on one of the needles.

The note thing sounds good...I think I will learn to recognize it eventually....I am just getting used to turning the work....

Yeah...I have my beginning marked....I am just trying to figure out how to leave my work when I stop

I try not to stop unless I am at the beginning/end or middle.
That way I don't worry as much about my needles coming out of my work.

I am starting to get the hang of it...

I say that now...but just wait until tomorrow when I try to pick it up again....*smiles*

It is not a hard technique...just one to get used to...

Don't think I have made the switch from DPNs yet...but it is neat...

When you go back to double points, don't be surprised if you drop your just worked needle in the floor a few times
