Is there an easy way to put in a lifeline? Coral

I've started Gran's Shawl. Obviously I will have to put in life lines (this is *me* we are discussing here)!!

Does anyone have a tip or two of an easier way than using a wool needle and crochet thread and running it through the stitches a few at a time?

Okay. Lots of tips! I have the little stitch markers that are like safety pins - i.e. removable. Maybe I should buy a circular 4mm tomorrow. (I'm going to the Yarn shop tomorrow - just a 'top up ;-) I promise).

I'm not advanced enough to think of buying interchangables. Maybe that should be on my list. Next I'll probably ask for comparative prices!

Maybe while in LYS tomorrow you should invest in the 4mm as an interchangeable if that's an option they have available. They are really no different than a regular circular needle, other than the fact that you can change the tips. The only thing I would suggest is not matter which ones you choose take them for a "test knit" before commitment. This is something the store should not only allow but encourage.
I am in South Africa, the best shop probably does not carry interchangeables. I will have to import them myself. First though a price comparison. Are they cheaper in England or USA, or are they manufactured somewhere else? Confusion reigns!
