Doesn’t my counter look a little like a grinning frog to you? Note the six rows completed. Only 70 more to go before the next border. Ha!
For some reason, when I carry yarn in both hands for fairisle, I end up with what ever stitches I am carrying in the left hand (continental style) knitting twisted. I can’t figure it out.
YES IT DOES! What kind is it? I knit a lot- and I love frogs AND I need a counter! Please share
That is a Clover Knitting Counter – the mini Kacha Kacha. I got mine at my LYS, but you could get it online here: http://www.getknitted.com/acatalog/Clover_Knitting_Accessories.html
It’s about midway down the page. I think I’ve seen them at Joanne’s too, but can’t get their page to load to check.
edit: oops! that’s a site in the UK. I’ll poke around and find a US site later today.
You mean, it isn’t a frog????
Your counter does look like a frog. Cute. Are you wrapping your yarn differently when you use your left hand? That could be the problem.
I like the slippers for your little girl and even better that she will wear them. Your husband sounds like a real sweetheart.
Okay, here is a US source for the counter: http://www.clover-usa.com/dyn_prod.php?k=51311&p=CLV3118
I must be wrapping my yarn differently, or I wouldn’t be getting the twisted stitches — they don’t really stand out too much, and Silvanus will be felted anyways, so I’m not worrying about it right now — I’ve just been unable to figure how to catch the yarn so it doesn’t twist.
Frustrating. I need to learn the continental style better.
I absolutely adore your counter!
