For the past week I've been practicing my knit stitch (over...and over...and over) in preparation for an upcoming, top-secret project tutorial for all of YOU lovely people.
Here's the conundrum: I'm not done yet with the practice project I started (and I don't want to unravel/shelf it), BUT I'm ready to start another one from scratch to start teaching y'all with. Aaaaand I only have one set of needles.
What to do?
Well, if you have more common sense than I do, you'll just borrow your mom's needles for your new project. But that was way too conventional and uncreative for me (small print: the thought never entered my pretty little head), so I had the brilliant idea to use a pipe cleaner as a sort of bookmark to hold my row until I come back to the project.
All you need is a pipe cleaner.
Experienced knitters, are there any other strategies besides extra needles and pipe cleaners for "bookmarking" projects?
