great row counter – knitters

Stumbled on a great item from Wychwood Dreams on Etsy. She has done a row counter that is a little abacus.  Look at it and you’ll figure out how to make it.  Its just 10 rings attached together, then attached to an 11th ring that’s set up with beads and after each 10 rows, you move a bead.  The needle goes through the first ring and then moves to the next ring when you’ve finished that row.  Finish 10 rows and move the bead on the abacus.  You can probably use it count 20 rows at a time, depending on how you set up your pattern and your brain.  Forget the Abacus and just attach 10 beads together and tick off on your pattern after 10 rows.  What a brilliant idea!!
