I'm at a loss for what to do here. I'm about to start my afghan, which I'm knitting all in one fail swoop instead of sections that I'll sew together. My problem is that the stoppers I use to keep stitches from sliding off (which will be imperative when I set my project down for a spell) love to pop right off my slick Addi circulars. I love knitting with my Addis, so I don't want to swap them out for bamboo (which would mean buying another long-ass needle anyway), but I don't know what to use to prevent the stitches from slipping off. I've tried to find some stoppers that aren't just "caps" for the points of the needles but haven't had any luck. Does anyone have any ideas? I was really hoping to start this project, but until I can find a solution, I'll have to put it on hold.
