My Favorite Knitting Accessory

They aren't pretty -- but they are do preserve my sanity. Barrel Counters! I have so many of them -- because I use them in most of my projects. Lace, cables, stitch patterns -- I use these things!

When I am knitting an Aran pattern, I use one counter per stitch pattern. That way I can put it down, and I know I will be on the correct row when I pick it up. I don't buy the ones that have the plastic loop -- I do what I've done for years -- I put a piece of yarn through the center, make it into a loop then hang it from a marker.
