This is my current side project: a row counter for Apple Watch. I am very fond of knitting in my spare time. 

Some time ago I sent the following survey among fellow knitters to understand what are the struggles they face while knitting.

When you are following a pattern, you have to keep track of the number of rows you have already done. Survey results show that most of them are using a manual counter or pen & paper to keep track of the number of rows they have already done, which means that they have to drop the needles to write down the row count, slowing the knitting process. Just to give you a bit of context, this is how a manual counter and a knitting pattern look.


This app goal is to solve that problem. It recognises gestures so there is no need of dropping the needles, a wrist shake will increment the row count. The aesthetics are inspired by manual row counters.
