Some Cool Knitting Apps

I’ve finally joined the “app” club—yes, it’s true. I now have an Android. Darned if I knew what an app or a Droid was two months ago. I probably would have said that it’s one more gadget we just don’t need in our lives. But alas, I now have to eat my words because I’m finding some really nifty knitty things out there.

Here are just a few of my latest finds:

County is a free row counter app that helps you to easily keep track of your work. Just tap the screen each time you complete a row or round and it keeps count for you. This version also allows you to keep track of pattern repeats and tells you how many you’ve completed.

If you’re like me, and you have more projects in the works than you care to admit, this free version only allows you to keep track of one project at a time. An upgrade to the paid version, County Plus, allows you to keep track of multiple projects, and also includes Ravelry integration.

Knitcards allows you to keep track of your finished projects, current and future projects, and has a handy needle gauge finder. You can add details about each project, including an image. The only drawback is that you are limited to writing only a certain amount of text about your project.

Knitting Stash is similar to Knitcards, but in my opinion, it is the most versatile in the bunch. This app lets you write an unlimited amount of detail about a specific project, and it also includes a row counter, which you can create and name for multiple projects.
