Row Counter, How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
Yes, I’m working on the Wavy scarf and my row counter is my new best friend. In past projects, I would put the row counter on the needles and use it for the first few rows and then I would just forget to click it over so it was useless. With the Wavy scarf, it has saved me many a froggin’ I’m sure. I’m really enjoying this scarf because it’s a fairly simple pattern, but it’s enough to keep me interested and make me pay attention.
Otherwise, I’m just working and getting stuff done for my thesis. This weekend will be a thesis writing extravaganza, since I don’t currently have any other plans. Then, next weekend I get to go to Utah to see one of my best friends. I’m very excited about that.
I’ve just about made up my mind to add wavy to my knitting wanna do list. Thanks for sharing the row counter tip. I’m looking forward to seeing how yours turns out.
I haven’t done the wavy scarf, but I know that another life saver is running a contrasting line through the last row of a lace repeat. The pattern I am using has a 10 row repeat. I move a sticky note up on the pattern grid as I finish each row. And then when I finish row 10 I pull a thread through all the stitches, then go on. Once I made and error and had to rip-but only went back to my safety net thread. I know if I had had to rip it all I would have not restarted the shawl!
Good luck on the thesis. I can’t wait to see your scarf. I might have to make one myself.
