that's a great idea yvonne!!!
Stef, what do you mean exactly by its being in your way? Is it hanging in front of where you want to insert your needle? You might also try holding the LH needle differently; some people hold it straight up and down, some parallel to the floor, some at a 45 degree angle to the floor... some people hold the needle so it points OUT from their chest. Try to find a way that's comfortable for you and allows the work to hang out of the way.
