Now, This is purely hypothetical...if I forgot to keep track of how many rows I was doing, cuz I thought I would surely remember, then got interrupted and then forgot how many rows I just did, how would I count them? Say for garter stitch? Do I count by the ribs on one side or the other? What about St st? Remember...this is purely hypothetical, I would never, ever forget what I was doing...no, seriously.
