Never and Rarely Done

On this little project I am knitting on, I have found myself doing two things.  One that I have never done in my knitting, is put a lifeline in.  But, with the aid of Chiagoo's Interchangeables needles that have this little hole in them, it is so much easier to put a lifeline in while knitting, then to add it with a needle and thread.

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!

So that's what the little holes are for!
