How-To Count on Your Knitting & Crocheting!
If you are like me you like working on your knitting or crocheting but not the tedious work of trying to keep track of every row, stitch and pattern. However, unfortunately unless you keep good track your project is never going to look like the pattern picture! It won’t look good or fit correctly, so you really have to, as you already know, keep track of all those things.
So how do you accomplish it? If you are like me you might use paper and pencil, or run a copy of the pattern and keep a pencil nearby. But if you miss one stitch, one slash on the paper you’re doomed. The part I hate is finishing a row or pattern repeat and then having to look away from my work to figure out where I am in the pattern, and then making my mark before I can go back and find where I am working again. So how do I get around this and what am I using to do that?
I use a new app for iPads called Knit Counter Pro just released by a company that is good at making craft apps, called Technical Made Easy. It let’s me add up to 25 patterns into individual files, spelling out all the details so that it makes it easy to hit a big button each time I finish a row or pattern repeat. It will even give me an alarm when I reach a spot in the pattern where the pattern changes so I don’t keep knitting or crocheting and then have to end up ripping out my work! Have you ever done that? I do when it’s simple, monotonous work, like straight knitting or crochet that is mindless, row after row same old same old. I am always afraid of working too far, or should I say I used to be! With Knit Counter Pro that doesn’t happen anymore!
I really like that I can set up a pattern in a file once and then I am ready to go! I also like that it allows me to have multiple files going at any one time, because admit it, us needleworkers never have just one project going! I usually have a long involved project started and then I do little mini-projects to break up all that work, don’t you? Well with this one app I can work on up to 25 of them! Even I never work on that many! LOL!
