Stitch-stopA special circular needle for picking up stitches and holding them safely.
The needle has one tip and a stopper into which the tip can be inserted to close to form a ring.
You can keep the stitches that you are not using on this 'spare needle'.
It is then easy to knit the stitches back from the stitch-stop, when you are ready to go on.
