Row/stitch counter apps - do you use one?

Due to several issues my memory is going out the window pretty quickly so I checked to see if there were any knitting/crocheting apps available to help keep track of rows and stitches. There are apps for everything else, why not this, right? LOL. Boy howdy are there!

There are a lot of them actually. I ultimately chose Bee Count on Android. It's got a clean UI and is easy to set up. You can attach counts to each other to have them automatically increase incrementally which is a cool feature.

Are you using one of these app? What is your opinion of it?


Dan's Afghan in progress

I found this pattern on Ravelry. It's my first time successfully using circular needles. I wasn't sure I was going to like how this looked once I really got into the cabled part of it, but now that I've got almost two feet completed I am really loving it.

The pattern is super easy. It's just four rows repeated until it's the length you want.


Depressive Projects

I'm going through a particularly hard time right now and needed something to ease my mind for a bit. I decided a new knitting project was needed. I taught myself how to knit cables and tackled a pattern I've been sitting on for 5 years. I'm really pleased with how it came out. There is one small mistake that I can't not see every time I look at it. LOL

Updated Info.

Hey, guys -

Haven't been on this site in several years. Actually quite happy that it's still around. I updated my Instagram photo link. Sorry if you've tried to visit that page and couldn't get to it. I forgot to update the link a few years ago when I changed it; sorry :-( Drop by it and say hello/follow and I'll follow back. Thanks, guys.

How Time Flies

I can't believe it's been over 3 years since I've been on this site. Or posted anything.

It's not that I haven't been knitting in that time. I've done several large pieces mostly, and mostly as gifts for other people. Inspiration sort of waxes and wanes, I guess. I have several pieces sort of languishing unfinished in the closet next to me as I sit at the computer right now.

Spirit Day

Once again, I write a rare blog post for this group.

However, I want to remind everyone that October 19th is Spirit Day. A day to show support for our youth - especially LGBTQ youth - as they deal with bullying. In this time of turmoil in the world, they need to know that there are adults who choose to love them and respect their right to be who they are. No qualifiers. No strings attached. No judgement. Just acceptance and support.

Please, more than ever, be one of those adults.
