I just got a pattern and some yarn for a shell today so I haven't started knitting yet, but I was reading through the pattern and it says to place the stitches on a holder, and I was just wondering if I could just use a spare needle or something like that. Or does it absolutely have to be something specific? As far as I know you just need to get the stitches out of your way. So I am thinking it doesn't matter but I figured I'd ask you guys.
Thanks a bunch
