Alright a lot of you were amazed at the wonders of a lifeline and inquired how it exactly works.
I actually took it for granted that a lot of people already knew about this trick!
Well this knitting secret power was passed onto me by Turtlegirl some time ago...can't remember when as we sit & knit together from time to time! ;o)
So here I am wanting to ensure I pass on this gem of knowledge to all of you lovelies!!! :oD
(psst...forgive the picture quality, as I didn't think about capturing it until the early morning hours of trying to finish up my Phenomenal Ripple)
1. You need a needle set that has a tiny hole at the cable join (i.e. Denise/Options)
2. You then get your handy dandy dental floss! (tee hee my dentist would be so proud of me! Haha)
Or anything that fits into that hole and thread it thru...tie a knot so it will stay
3. Then you begin knitting that particular row (normally a non-pattern row) and watch it thread itself thru your stitches while knitting!
That is it!!
Hope that helps you in saving any knits in the future....the key is to actually USE IT! LOL
Have any questions about this easy technique?? If so, I will answer them in the comment section this time so others can view them as well.
Now go forth and grab yourself a lifeline
to avoid any heartache on your projects!! :o)
