A digital row counter is the perfect accessory for hands free counting while you knit or crochet. No more stopping to make a mark on a piece of paper or cranking a manual row counter. The electronic counter has a 5 digit LCD screen display that can count from 0 up to 99999 rows with 2 soft touch rubberized silver buttons to control it. Made from ABS plastic, the same material used for Lego. The row counter uses a standard AG10 1.5v button cell battery, so when it wears out, simply unscrew the back of the counter to replace it.

THE GLEENER

We couldn’t live without this wonder tool. Fuzzing and pilling are a fact of life with knitted garments and some fibers and blends are worse than others. Regular use of the Gleener will keep your pieces looking new and will even resuscitate some you thought were beyond repair. Not convinced? See before and after photos and product videos on the Gleener website.
