Double Pointed Needles DUH moment
I don't know if this will help anyone or not. I was having trouble keeping my marker on the double pointed needles when I was knitting in the round for a hat. I put a point protector on the end of the needle where the round ended and it worked great. When I got to the end of the round I just moved the point protector to the other needle.

Oh now that is such a good idea. You need a prize for that!

I place my stitch marker between my first and second stitches when working with dpn's to mark beginning of rows. I feel clumsy when I put protectors on my needles. You came up with a great idea that seems to be working for you!

I just match up the tail from the cast on with the gap in the needles. I should try this, though. I my point protectors...they look like little socks. :D

very good idea, Robin I clip a stitch marker @ the stitch below the join of the 1st & 4th dpn and follow the cast on tail
I so love hearing everyone's ways in doing things like this in knitting. Knitting tips are all VERY HELPFUL
