When you aren't using your ribber, it's always good to cover the needlebed. This keeps you from catching your sleeves or fingers in the gate pegs or needles as you work on the main bed only.
Ribber covers were available for machines, but in a pinch, manilla file folders do the trick! You can also safely pull your knitting out over the ribber bed as you work.
