You beat me. In a pinch you can also make an "O" out of suitable line starting with about a 30" length and a sheet bend and tie a figure-of-eight knot on either side of the sail (thread the loop through the cringle before tying the second f.o.8. knot). You end up with a couple inch loop on either side of the sail.
