Somewhere earlier there was a post about using stitch counters on circs. I saw in a recent Webs catalog that they have a counter that is attached to a ring to go around the needle and hang off. I thought that was a clever idea.

I just saw one of those, too, Ingrid. I think I saw it online @ Joann's web site. Pretty cool; I wonder if it's as practical to use as it it seems.

It certainly would be easier than the one that slides on the needle. If I have to count, though, I usually use a pencil, or just count the knitting. If I have to remember to cable, I keep a stitch marker on the needle and move it down a stitch each row so I know that when it has, say, six stitches from the beginning-of-the-row marker I should cable. I started this when I was knitting while sitting at the hospital and had neither pencil nor counter. I have so many WIPs I'd have to buy counters by the gross!

I have one of those hangy row couonters super cheap here I use it for flat and circular knitting. I *also* have a beYOOtiful row counting bracelet I made :-) A picture of the new prettier pink one is below, and there's pics of the first green/yellow one I made here on my blog... I didn't like the wire I used for that one, so I made another until I have time to take that one apart (this one is strechy clear elastic which I like better). My blog also has ridiculously detailed instructions on how to use it :-) (hint hint look at my blog :-) )

I made 2 others for some friends, (I should have taken pictures) and they LOVED them. Very stylish, AND you don't have to worry about your kids messing with your counter, or your cats stealing them (like mine do)

**edit at 11:21pm CT... see in the top picture is my hangy counter, in the background!! And it is very useful I use it all the time. ... it's not quite as convenient for straight knitting, because it only goes on one needle, but it's GREAT for knitting in the round. it!

and ignore my dirty toe in the pictures!

Hildie: I really like your counter bracelets and I'm now in my head constructing my own already :D
I'd have to wait untill I've either moved or found the beadstash at my parentshouse though to actually make it, but just to have the idea clear: the small elastic circle that you push the counting-beads through, is it simply a tiny elastic band that you've put around the 3 longer stands and can move around and up and down freely? or is it in some way attached to the other strands aswell?

/Karen.
