Lifeline Methods
The video on the basic method of placing a lifeline and how useful it is when frogging was a big help. However, the link to the post on using interchangable needles was not taking me to a specific post or thread.

It would be great if a video on methods of using interchangable cable needles with lifelines and/or using cable needles with lifelines could be on the site.

Does anyone know of any on YouTube or somewhere else that would help in the meantime?

Also, what methods do you use with Lifelines? I wasn't able to find a topic on it in these forums but maybe I gave up too fast.

Knittinghelp is the first place I look whenever I am stuck! Great Job!

Thanks! The descriptions are helpful BUT sometimes you need to see it for it to really click.

Once in awhile you just can't get your head around the descriptions even when you physically try it out.

If you plan on doing lace knitting, the lifeline is soooo wonderful to know. Placing crochet thread through the little hole on the Options needles works just great. It's also not difficult to get a plastic threading needle and just thread through each stitch carefully after you do a purl row. It's so worth the time and effort because it will save you from pulling your hair out if you have to frog. I would do a practice swatch and make a mistake on purpose to test it out. Good luck!
