First, I dropped my stitch marker and I think it clicked up an extra row, but I'm not sure. How do you count to know how many rows you've knitted? I tried counting the v's, but then I didn't know if you counted the stitches on the needle as a row too.
Second, I'm going to attempt to knit my first pattern. This will be the first time that I've had to change colors in the middle of the row. I think I undertand how to do that, but I was wondering if there is a way to carry the old yarn along a row or do you have to cut the ends every time the color changes within a row?
thanks in advance!
