Fronts and Backs

Relax two 
I've been getting a lot of work done on the front of my second Relax pullover.  I'm almost to the underarms now.  I've got all the row numbers marked from the back shaping so I don't have to stop and measure, I just have to knit to the correct row.

I know that not everyone likes to use row/round counters, but I almost always use them, especially when I'm making two pieces that have to match like a front and a back, or sleeves, or a pair of socks.  I used a row counter on Sipila for the yoke section to keep track of my chart progress, but now that I'm knitting the body, I'm just knitting without a counter.  I don't have anything that needs matching to another piece right now because the body is knit in the round.  When I do sleeves, I'll use the counter again.  I really don't use the counter in crochet but that might have more to do with the kind of crochet I do than crochet itself.

Do you use counters or not?  If you don't use them, how do you keep track of where you are and keep your pieces matching?

Have a great weekend!  It got cold here overnight.  I got out the fuzzy running tights for the first time this morning and tonight we're under a freeze warning.  Stay toasty!

I don't generally use row counters, probably because I'd keep forgetting to turn them on per row!

I don’t use counters but I do write down all the details for the first sock or first sleeve so I don’t end up with strange mis-matched knitting!
