While I crochet or designing a pattern, I check my numbers. Sometimes I have to see it visually so 1 write lines of numbers then scribble the stitches above counting and counting again. I am checking numbers so often, in the back of my notebook I have a page of half eraseed symbols and numbers. Then all of a sudden….click went the lighbulb, the idea formed ….. what if ….
I type up the numbers, print them on cardstock and put them in a protective sleeve. Then use dry-erase markers to mark increases or stitch patterns. All the while, keeping my beloved numbers always ready for what comes next.
