I’m usually pretty good at learning from past mistakes. One of the few that I just seem doomed to repeat is putting a project aside “just for a bit — certainly not long enough to forget where I am” and picking it up 3
months years later only to discover that I have no freaking clue what is going on with the pattern. If I even still have the pattern. If you’re like me (please tell me I’m not the only one who does this), you might find these nifty tips I wrote about for the Lion Brand Notebook helpful.

Here, have another glass! Over at the Lion Brand blog again, some tips and tricks for working with charts (since I know you’ve spent the last week learning to read them).

When I first started working cables and lace, I hated charts. Hated ’em. Then I learned how to read them, and discovered that they made everything so much easier, for several reasons. And the truth is, it wasn’t that hard to learn, either. I wrote all about why and how you should learn, too, over at the Lion Brand blog.
