Hi there, Thanks Mother Hen for bringing this to my attention. I have been a very bad girl and haven't been checking in as of late, you know how we get so busy.

Simple as can be, just make a chain that's a bit longer than you think you'll need. Make your first row and undo whatever is left over. You can use anything handy to unchain the remaining chains by starting with the first chain from the tail and undo each one up to where your stitches begin. I usually use a yarn needle, toothpick, anything lying next to my recliner that's small enough to fit in the chain. When you reach the stitches, stop unchaining and give the tail a little tug to snug it back up. It only takes a moment to unchain and you don't have to do all that math. (I'm just not as smart as the resident craftsman, isn't he great?)

Thank you Flustard for giving me this opportunity to check in and post once again. Love to all, and God bless. Miss talking with you ladies and hope all is well with each one of you.
