"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.

I am trying to knit a lacy wrap for my mom, and with every lace pattern more sophisticated than a basic yo k2tog, I lose count within a matter of rows and f**k it all up.
I tried using stitch markers to indicate where I should be starting a new pattern rep, but they end up getting in between stitches that need to be worked together.
DH says not to work lace unless I have the peace and quiet to concentrate, so I can expect to get around to it in about 20-odd years.

Any good advice other than "buy your lace"?

Ummm... I haven't really tried making lace, but I know through my habit of not being able to find a stitch marker (probably due to the fact that I didn't own any until recently) that a short piece of yarn can work as a marker in a pinch. It might work for you to have a marker that you can just pull out of the piece you're working on, instead of having to take it off of the needles.
