Yes, still at work on gifts so no pix to share but I did read a hint this morning from Clara at Knitter's Review that I wanted to pass on. The latest article is a review of interchangeable knitting needles sets, which I don't need since I have a Knit Picks set, but this paragraph caught my eye. I knit lace often and put in lifelines at the end of pattern repeats - this tip will be a real time saver for me. Thank you Clara!
"All of the needles use a screw-and-key mechanism that will be familiar to you if you've used the Knitter's Pride Symfonie Dreamz or Knit Picks Options needles. You screw the tip into the cord and then insert a fine metal rod through a hole in the join to tighten."
(HERE'S THE TIP) "The key hole serves a second function for those knitters who love to work intricate lace. Every few dozen rows, or perhaps every pattern repeat depending on what you're doing, simply run a thin strand of yarn through that keyhole and then proceed as normal. As you go, you'll be quietly stranding a lifeline into that row so that you can unravel any future mistakes back to that point. In technology terms, you're making a backup of your project—any changes made after the backup will be lost, but it's a whole lot better than having to erase and start from scratch."
