The first time I saw a chain row counter, I thought "Hmm, that's nice, but I’ll just mark my pattern".
But I inevitably forgot and spent more time re-counting my knitting than actually knitting!
Friend, do yourself a favor and put a chain row counter on that project (you can thank me later).
You’ll always know exactly where you are and get to knit more - and stress less!
No clicking, tallying, or waking your phone up every row.
