Substitute for a stitch holder?
I forgot to buy one while I was out shopping...any ideas as to something I can use at home until I can buy one? I think about 50 stitches will have to go onto it, so I can't just use a little safety pin or something.

Thanks in advance!

I just realized that I could use one of my extra Options cables with the little caps on the ends, but the chopstick idea sounds kind of cool!

Can you use more than one big safety pin?

I really like using scrap yarn when in a pinch and with a knot tied they won't fall out or off ....

I suppose I could have used safety pins or scrap yarn, but I was just curious if there were some ingenious device I just wasn't thinking about, lol.

I am using one of the extra cables with the cool cable caps from my KP Options set and it works perfectly. :D

That's one thing I LOVE about the options set- I have the Harmonies and am trying not to keep casting on- as I have 3 out of the 4 cables I have currently in use...

They do make wonderful stitch holders, and the less "equipment" I have to buy and use the better!

replacement for stitch holder
As I was reading this thread I thought of one , a large paper clip can be bended and unbended, it is for 16 stitches. Thanks for getting my brain to work

Thumb for Peppermint Patty fingerless glove.
