I'm sorta a beginner, and I'm knitting a scarf in the round.  It's long enough now that it's in the way as I work around it on DPN's.  Each time I knit a side, I have to flip/adjust the positioning of the entire scarf to continue knitting.  The scarf's sorta stiff, so that may be adding to the problem.  Also, the yarn twists around it.  I'm supposed to be knitting with the right side facing out (as it elongates), right?

Here's a pic
It's the binary scarf fr knitty .

Yep knitting something long if you leave it hanging can sit on your lap and get in the way. So how about not leaving it hanging? Tuck, tie, or pin it up.
It's looking really good and IMO if you are strnading you are no longer a beginner!

Thanks for the response.  I just thought of another simple answer, tuck the scarf under my arm or wrap it behind me, haha.  It's getting much longer now.
