hi, apperently no-one is in the 'how to' forum so i washopeing someone in here could help me with a question....
i was wondering how you would be able to count your rows. i dont have the little circles and i have a feeling that even if i did i wouldnt know what to do with them. please help, because i have a big project i would like to start today! :XX:
If no one is in the other sections, post there, anyway. I think most of us just look for new posts and all of them come up.
The little rings are for keeping track of stitches on your needle, rather than counting rows. There are little row counters available that you slip on your needle and turn each time you finish a row, but you probably don't have one lying around.
You can count your rows with a hatch mark on a piece of paper, or when I have a specific number of rows to do, I write those numbers on a piece of paper and cross them out as I complete them.
Or you can just count the number of v's up from the bottom and that will tell you how many rows you've knit. If your knitting has a stitch pattern, though, keeping track is the most sure way.

I enjoy reading, quilting (started 10/11/2003), bread baking, purse making, making fabric bowls. I use to macramé and decorate cakes.
I started hand knitting (10/01/2005) and got my embroidery machine for Christmas 2005. I had 2 Bond Incredible Sweater Machines given to me in Feb. of 2007 that I'm really enjoying. http://susies1955.myphotoalbum.com/ http://susieshobbyspot.blogspot.com/
