how do i slip a stitch marker?
i've got a pattern that calls for me to:

Row 2 (RS) K 1, M1, k to first marker, M1, slip marker (sm), k 1, sm, M1, k to last st, M1, k 1 35 sts.

so does this mean don't knit the marked stiches?

thanks

it just means you're going to pass the marker from the left needle over to the right needle.

if it's just hanging on the needles, it will automatically move from row to row.

Sometimes stitch markers can be used to mark a stitch that's already knitted so you can measure from that point. Those are the removeable kind, of course; there's several different ways to mark your work.

yeah in this case the way HvK explained it makes sense cause i was actually hanging the marker on the stitch and was doing a lot of exta counting... hence the feeling like a dingbat. well you learn something new every day
