Thanks. I have a bunch of stitchmarkers (but I use rubberbands, how sad is that) I was also thinking of making a bracelet like the row counters with an "I" section and & "R" section so I can clip a charm in the midde of each but I'm not a bracelet person.

I must say I'm a little impressed with you knitters keeping track of big projects, crochet is way easier to kept track of.

That's what I do too.  It's soooo much easier than counting as you go.

sorry, i only knit at home so it works for me.  but, i found these on amazon.com...


http://www.amazon.com/Lion-Brand-Row-Counters-Pkg/dp/B0007LHJXS/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/102-5925051-6902516?ie=UTF8&s=home-garden&qid=1185545638&sr=8-1

apparently, you slip them on the needle before hand and as you do a row you turn the number.  even if you were working on circulars you could just keep it nearby.

If you get that round row counter, you can thread it onto scrap yarn and sew it on the top of your project like a button, then take it off when you are done.  Pinning a cheat sheet to the top of your project telling you what to do on each row also works for me.  A tip - you can buy "jewelers" safety pins that don't have the curly cue round bit at the end of the pin so your yarn doesn't get caught in the pin and pull.

You can also buy a row counter at the yarn/craft store that is bigger and flat so it won't roll away making it harder to lose.  I don't remember what brand it is (Clover?) it is red and rectangular. The counting mechanism works with a clicker on top.  I prefer this counter even though it is more cumbersome because it is a lot easier to advance your rows - you just give it one quick push and the counter advances vs. fiddling with the dial on the round counter.  This counter is maybe 3 times more expensive than the row counters jamie found on amazon, but I have found it to be a good investment.  You can knit up a quick cozy for it so you can wear it around your neck or tie it to the strap of your knitting bag.  The tricky thing with this row counter is that there is no lock for it so you have to watch out for it clicking to the next row accidentally in your bag.  (In fact, I think I was just inspired to rig up a lock for mine.  I will report back.)

This is obviously a subject I have put a lot of thought into... lol.  I am a big gadget person, so I can get a bit obsessive about buying and trying all the knitting gadgets.
