Sorry my blog is such a mess. I need to figure out what I am going to do with this blog. So far I am just trying. I am writing what is in my mind.

To day I will pass a tip on to you!
Some times when I am knitting flat - with a lot of stitches on a circular needle (see below) - i feel that the work is dragging down and making the work harder and heavier than neccasary. I constantly have to pull it up closer to the working end of the needle tip. But then one day I figured that I could use the cord stopper I always have in my tool-box.

And do you know why I have it in my tool box (I actually have 2)? I got it from an American knitter who use them as the bump at one end of double pointed needles so that they become domino-needles. Smart isn't it?


  1. Jo det er smart, det er også smart, at bruge den sådan, for så bliver strikket jo oppe og rutscher ikke ned og bliver tung.

    Jeg må også have et par i min lille pose.

  2. That's genius - thank you for the tip!

  3. Thank you for the tip, that's really handy! I have had the same problem and I used an eraser for stopper last time.

  4. Very good idea - I have a couple of these from an old jacket.
