Great idea!
Hi, Momwolf!

I LOVE what you've created. The rings are particularly super.

Please put this up on the sticky at the top of the General Knitting section - "Knit Tips and Tricks". It's so good lots of knitters should see it!

Thanks and very well done!

Happy knitting!

Ruthie

I love these and I think I'll make some of my own. I forget to move the numbers on the counter, too, unless it's on my needles...and sometimes even then! Right now I'm using some yarn through the counter and a ring tied to the yarn, but there's too much yarn in the way (lol).

I think you should put those up on Etsy and make yourself some extra cash. Then you could do some serious stash enhancement. ;-)

Hope this makes sense
I LOVE that idea!! I continually confuse myself with the mechanical row counter when I resume a project.....do I START with row X or did I END with row X

Yay for row counters
Thanks for the inspiration, momwolf.

I made my own row counter and added rings to my mechanical row counters. They are now much easier to use!
