Row Counter

I saw a row counter similar to this on YouTube and decided to make one for myself. This one has 7 beads on it so I can use it while making mini socks and hat brims. I place the counter on the arm of the couch next to me. The Scottie bead at the top helps it to balance without falling off and the beads slide easily in either direction.

Mini Sock Bookmarks

Here's a good way to use the mini socks. I crocheted a chain 22 inches long, attached the sock to the center of the chain, and threaded the ends of the chain through a pony bead from opposite sides. The chain is long enough to fit around a large book. Pulling the ends of the chain snugs the pony bead up to the book so the bookmark keeps its place. By attaching a small metal ring to the sock and to the chain where the sock is attached, the sock hangs freely.
