    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!
