losing needle

How do you keep from losing the needle? I have graduated up to a 13 to see if i will lose it fewer times. I get several rows in and turn my attention elsewhere and there it goes and you can't recover these puppies.
Beautiful scarf though. I saw one of these at work and had to have one. Wal-mart has some of the Sashay yarn for under 5 bucks but not this color.

The scarfs are so much fun to make that I am addicted I have made several.

This is a wonderful yarn to use for scarfs. I use 6 stiches and have made 3 different color scarfs, now everyone that sees them
wants one. I wish the yarn was more available.

Boutique Sashay Scarf Less Bulky

Has anyone knit this scarf pattern casting on only 4 stiches?
I am going to try for a less bulky ruffled look. Hoping that the ruffles will lie a bit flatter.

Knitting with Sashay

I use my knitting wheel to make these instead of needles. Less frustrating and they work up fast!
