I was reading over the blogs earlier and saw that a few stitchers are keeping track of their progress by counting the rows and stitches to see what percent they have completed. Since this is my first pattern that a big part of it really has a stitch filling in most of it I thought that I’d like to do that too.
But alas, I have a problem. Footprints is made up of the 4 different parts of the outside of the cross (not a big problem to count really) and then the majority of the inside is the outlining/lettering. How would I count that? I want to keep a pretty close to accurate count of how far I’ve gotten but can’t figure out how to work the lettering in to the count.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I don’t want to leave it as “__% done plus the outlining” everytime but have no earthly idea how to count the letters. HELP!!
