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

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.

I did about 3000 stitches yesterday. I had to force myself to eat the last one at midnight.

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:
