counting rows in garter stitch??
For some reason I just forgot how to count the rows for garter stitch??? I want to make a trial bag before I go for the real yarn. I need thirty six rows for the bottom of the bag. For some silly reason I didn't use my row counter for this. I just wrote down the rows as I went Yup got side tracked and now I don't know how many more rows I need. I tried to google how to but really didn't give me what I wanted.
does one row of bumps count as two? I just feel so silly that I don't know how to count these.
Any help will make this silly old knitter very happy.

Yep,

One "bump" counts as 2 rows. You *did* remember!

oh thank you for the answer. I thought that was how to do it. But I wanted to make sure.
Again thank you for the answer.
