Hi Wends and Isaiah 507
You’re not asking stupid questions Wends. I’ve always thought that with knitting there was something ‘missing’ - why should knitters have to keep count while they’re knitting - why can’t pattern changes be marked first before you maybe make a mistake and have to unravel.
In fact, I got so fed up that I came up with my own solution - it’s a knitting hook that you place on the LEFT NEEDLE - mark out knits, purls, increases, decreases, (great for lace) whole pattern widths, button bands.
It’s called www.countonknit.com and if you and Isaiah would like to contact me, I’ll send you both a complimentary set of hooks.
