I've tried that a couple times, but still get frustrated. I just wish they would offer written instructions as well, you know?
When I'm knitting, I look at my stitches as they go. Then I look up at the pattern, and have to adjust my vision to see what's written there. I've discussed it with my eye doctor, and he's tried 3 different prescriptions for me. I guess I'm just one of those people with difficult eyes. :pout:
(Must be all those years of reading piano music, typing and filing as a secretary, reading books, and doing computer work.)
I think part of my frustration is the key for the charts. It seems like every knitting pattern uses different symbols for different stitches. So, I'm having to remember the symbols as well as the stitches, on top of trying to see it. Just too much work for my little brain.
