I am new to knitting and this site, I have one scarf under my belt!! I want to make this purse http://www.yarniverse.com/page.htm?PG=FreePatterns
it calls for a row counter. What is this and is this something I should be adding to my sewing box? Do I really need this?
Also the scarf I made had 1 cable down the middle. I had my grandmother who lives far away get me started while she was here visiting. She showed me how to use the stitch holder to make a cable. Is this the best method or do I need to learn how to use a cable needle?
Thanks in advance!!
