How about a nice Latino one with glistening muscles and a loin cloth? I hear those can be a pleasure to work with. :thumbsup:

Last night I used peanut butter m&m's for row counters. I lived in fear that dd would come out on the porch and take one of my precious counters. :lol:

If my dogs are stealing a little plastic row counter, can you imagine what they'd do with PB M & M's????? :shock: Not to mention the tummy trouble Id have to clean up later..... :doh:

I like the little cheapo row counters. I have about 8 of them. I've used fancier counters, but I think they're overrated. The ones that slip onto your needle are the best, IMO.

Of course, I've never tried M&Ms. Or glistening stud for that matter. :thinking:

one of my girlfriends used to use M&Ms to count rows. she'd get REALLY mad when we ate her counters.
I am in the process of making some beaded row counters; I'll post a pic when i'm done. I have a hangy row counter that i LOVE, but always forget to use. Right now I do the "uhh, that looks like about 20 rows" method.

I never remember to turn the counter, so I just count them periodically. The only time I really have to keep track is when I have to decrease every few rows and it doesn't show up too well. But then again, I do an awful lot of chart work--post-its take care of keeping track.

I got a row counter bracelet along with matching earrings from a gal off of ebay and I wear them even when i'm not knitting. "Doreen" made me custom made ones (I chose the color and charm on them although the picture doesn't show the needles and yarn charm on the bracelet, there is one.) I've got many compliments from them and the bracelet's great for knitting.

Also check her on ebay under seahorse designs or row counter bracelets (I didn't see any bracelets on her site but some one said she does have them on ebay and that's where I did find her...)

Oooo ... I like how you think! I'd have to have Plain, though.

A funny story: Our next-door neighbor's daughter was over here playing the other day, and I had my knitting sitting on the sofa w/ my clicky row counter (http://www.joannfabric.com/catalog.jhtml;$sessionid$ZRT5LOIAABVLSP4SY5NBHOR50 LD3OEPO?CATID=82328&PRODID=11837) sitting on top of the pattern. I was in the kitchen cooking dinner when I hear "click, click, click, click" about 100 times. :shock:

Fortunately, my son had been playing with it earlier in the day; however he remembered what # it was on when he started & then reset it. I told him he needed to go reset it to 16 and then explain to his friend why she shouldn't be playing with it. :doh:

I also saw this (http://www.joannfabric.com/catalog.jhtml;$sessionid$ZRT5LOIAABVLSP4SY5NBHOR50 LD3OEPO?CATID=82328&PRODID=108507), which looks interesting; however, I'm afraid I would lose all the little pegs.

The row counters are on the Ebay store site.

:thumbsup: This site is amazing and I know it's gonna be the #1 knitting site (If it isn't already) I mean it's not even a year old yet and i'm noticing KnittingHelp.com all over the web. :happydance:

also, I was able to put up the pic of the row counter bracelet if you haven't noticed it on page 1.
