First, I should probably admit I'm entirely a self-taught knitter. I've never taken a knitting class nor been taught by anyone else. That isn't a problem for me, but tomorrow I'm teaching a sock class at a local LYS. I'm excited about it and not particularly nervous, but I have this one basic question...
When you knit socks, do you count your rows or do you simply go by measurements?
In other words, when you're knitting two socks separately (rather than 2 at a time), what do you do to ensure they're the same?
I always count rows, but it struck me (as I was knitting up another sample sock) that, keeping track of the number of rows is slower than simply knitting until it reaches a certain size. I'm probably too retentive to simply go by measurements and prefer to have an equal number of rows, but I was wondering about the rest of you....
Grace and Peace,
