you're absolutely correct when you see there are several solutions.... no difference in the outcome...i think the differences are only in how we're taught, and the specific situation... (what if there were 100 sts to be held? ... but of course, the circ ndl would still work great here ... another thing to consider is HOW LONG they will be on a holder....working with the rest of the sweater with another ndl or holder in your way is different from the waste yarn, which is soft and malleable)... the good thing is that you have learned to solve this and OTHER problems the best way for you... there is No Wrong Way To Knit!!!! (NWW2K)!!!!vermontmary said:This is confusing me... why wouldn't you just knit onto a stitch holder or run a piece of yarn through the stitches for a more flexible stitch holder? I really hate having to pick up those "live" stitches... so much room for error!
