I have a couple of apps on my phone that are good for counting and keeping track of my yarn stash, but none of the ones listed here. I will have to check them out and compare them to what I have. Bee count looks like something that might interest me. So does Gaugefy and Love Knittings app.


Wow! To be honest, I'd never even thought to look for knitting apps. And these sound so cool! I can totally see myself using some of them!
