WOW! I would never call myself an advanced knitter. I used to knit many moons ago and made some nice stuff like Indian Sweaters and stuff like that.
But these days, I only knit plain things and have only just completed my first 2 sweaters in a long time. I've knit socks and continue to knit socks... nothing fancy at all. I'm expecting myself to get better at it all and then I will try some fancy stuff.
I have trouble reading most patterns, can't read charts at all, tho I used to do that when I was younger. I've forgotten so much... been ill too long, forgot so much...
I love to knit anything plain, that doesn't take much energy, and I like to alter patterns whenever I can without messing up the pattern I'm doing... mostly I use different coloured yarns.
The things you posted for me are just fine, Jan. My concentration isn't what it used to be...
