3) None of your stitches pull out when you set everything down.
My mom taught me this trick. She's the master at it. She points her hook toward where she's working, takes the leading edge of the yarn along the hook, holds all three together (hook, yarn and work) and clips! And it stays.
It's a wonderful technique and, after seeing the blog post about the airplane incident and having my couch eat my hook countless times, I thought I'd pass it on!
So simple an idea. Makes one wonder why one never thought of that before? Thanks!
Such a simple, but great idea! Thanks for sharing!
Great tip, and one I'll use! My hook always ends up stuck between the couch cushions!
I love this idea. The trouble I always have is pulling stitches out when I am fishing my project out of my bag. This would keep that from happening. I will have to try it. Thanks!
Clothespins also make great yarn bobbins. Wind the yarn around the clothespin and clip the end of the yarn in the end of the clothespin to keep it from unwinding while you're working.
Nice tip. Thanks!

That's a great idea. Only recently I had a hook literally vanish into thin air! I was sat on the settee and I got distracted for a second or 2 by something (I didn't even stand up or leave my seat) but then I looked down and the hook was gone. This was a month ago and it has never turned up!
I now put the work and yarn and hook into a ziplock freezer bag even if I have to leave my seat for only a second but for bigger pieces I think I might use this clothespeg technique in future.
