Also, I wanted a rectangular afghan so I'm doing 9 ridges on the side pieces and 10 ridges top and bottom. The one extra ridge will make a difference as it gets bigger. I'm not sure how big this will end up, but I may have to use two circulars on each section to hold the stitches toward the end. I'm using a #7 needle and seem to have lots of those so not a problem. This is a project where you want to do just one more section at midnight before going to bed!
As it gets bigger, I'm wondering if there isn't something like the flexible portion of circ needles that you can buy by the yard (something like very small clothesline cording?) that you could fashion a holder with by cutting into lengths and holding its ends together? Sounds like a trip to the hardware store is due ...
