Last time, I blogged about some stitch markers and row counters I made using beads and charms from old necklaces (pictured below). Well, today I saw this cute fox in the jewelry section at Joann Fabrics and immediately saw a new row counter in my future!
The fox is all one piece but wiggles, if you know what I mean. The beads are from an old bracelet that I had. I strung it all up with fishing line, tied it in a knot to the lobster claw clasp and pushed the excess back into the beads. This will fit up to a US size 10.5 (6.5mm) knitting needle.
Great for crocheters too because of the lobster claw clasp.
I have one for sale in my etsy shop for $20.00. Pricey I know, but the pieces were a bit costly. Then you have to add in all kinds of fees and such. If you have an online shop, you know what I mean. Could be made much keeper with sales and/or coupons.
Have a great weekend,

For you newbies...no row counter handy? A post it note and a pencil work just as good. I stick one right on my pattern and count off the rows using chicken scratches.
