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

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!

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!

In progress - designing, knitting and writing a knitting book, "Design Your Own Gourmet Kitchen Cloths and Accessories".
