I use stitch markers that are split rings and slide them off the lifeline.

My confusion was that I thought you were using a spare cable as the lifeline - Doh

I'm pretty sure this is what you are all talking about.

Thanks so much.

Thanks for the link...using the tape on the needle is a great idea...easier than trying to use a tapestry needle!

Hi!

This is so great! Thanks for getting it started, AMy!

I tried suggestion #3 just last night when I had to knit just about a foot of I'cord for a project. It was great. I pulled out two of my Knit Picks interchangeables and with the threaded end in my left hand and the pointed end in my right I just zipped along and was finished in no time! How cool!

Thanks again!

Ruthie
