The same thing can be done with Knit Picks Interchangeables or any other needles that may have the added hole. If you need visual instruction, check this You Tube video out or any other.
The other thing that I rarely do (almost never) is add point protectors.
Since I started using circulars, I almost never do this. I did it all the time when I used straight needles for knitting, because the stitches were very much prone to toppling off the end of the needle when set down.
But, for this project, I am taking no chances. Lifelines and point protectors are my friends!
