|Rounds and Marking Them
It is important. When the directions say mark the right side or the round, please do.
When working with circles, sometimes seeing where you started a round is impossible. Then you will have to be like me and count your stitches back. But, if I haven't marked the round, how do I know where I started?
That's easy. Same reason for marking the right or wrong side. Eventually, you will put your project down. If you have the side marked, you will know how to proceed.
So, how does one mark. Take a small piece of yarn or thread, and tie it onto your yarn in use. Be creative, whatever is necessary. Paperclips do work, but are hard to deal with. I am cheap, so paperclips or yarn work fine for me.
I found these brass quilting safety pins. They are large, cheap and work very well. They come highly recommended from me.
There are round markers made. I love those. You can find them in knit shops. I have lost all of mine and cannot find more. Just be creative.
