Has anyone ever seen a row counter like this???
I've been thinking about different kinds of row counters and am just wondering if there IS such a thing like this out there:

A row counter that I can attach to my wrist with elastic. The "clicker" kind of row counter.

I have found that the kind that slides onto my knitting needles don't stay on the right number very well. Or do I just have to "suck it up" and buy more than 1 clicker counter?!?!?

What do you think??

Thanks Ingrid!!!

I like the one that looks like a ring, small enough to not get in the way while knitting.

Will have to check them all out!

I like the idea of putting as many M&M's on the table as there are rows and eating one each time you finish a row. It's a problem with kids around, though.

This reminded me of a time when I was knitting in the car. I scrounged around and found some pennies that I laid on the dashboard to keep count of rows. Oh, the things we'll do when necessity demands. I would have loved to have M&Ms instead.

What's worked well for me is to print out the pattern. I cross off the row number as I complete it. I make it a point not to quit for the night until I have totally finished a row and crossed it off. No stopping in the middle.

Unfortunately, I can't cross off the Row numbers for this pattern (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/basket-afghan) because it's a repeat of Rows 1-20 over & over.

Just wondering if anyone had found something different to use!

I write out the row numbers and put a mark after each one as I finish that row, draw a line through 4 for a group of 5 rows done and start counting again.

I have 2 free apps on my phone. "County" let's me set how many row repeats is in a pattern (which would work great for a 20 row pattern that repeats over and over) it also tells you how many repeats you've finished or are on - you choose.

The other one, Tallybee, just counts. All you do is tap it. I use it when I'm just repeating one row and I want to know how many I've done for a specific length.
