    The first time I saw a chain row counter, I thought "Hmm, that's nice, but I’ll  just mark my pattern". 
    But I inevitably forgot and spent more time re-counting my knitting than actually knitting!

    Friend, do yourself a favor and put a chain row counter on that project (you can thank me later).
    You’ll always know exactly where you are and get to knit more - and stress less!
    No clicking, tallying, or waking your phone up every row. 
    Just knit!

    • Gigi at Jasmin’s house knitting: striped socks for Andrew   Finished heel flap, turned heel. Working on gusset 

    • Jasmin is working on Chin Matthews' Dipole Beanie  in Seismic Yarn’s butter sock in the “Escape” colorway. “Compassion Collection where 20% of gross sales will be donated to an organization that supports a marginalized community. As a Pride inspired colorway, it only makes sense that the donations go to The Trevor Project, an organization that provides crisis intervention and suicide prevention to LGBTQIA+ youth.”
    • Gigi: started meadowland baby blanket 3.0 , Very potato chippy.

    • Gigi : started a  striped  preemie hat.  Not managing one hat per week
