Today's Agenda

I got the first edging knit onto the Sandburg scarf, which involved knitting, but also: taking careful notes as I went, correcting the chart and consequently the line by line directions, stopping in the middle to take pictures.

Then I finally stumbled on to the fact (undoubtedly known to everyone else in the universe), that you can use Paint to put words and lines and stuff on your pictures. In my case, not very elegantly executed items. But hey, after several attempts, I've got arrows! I've got rudimentary explanatory text! A whole new world is opening up before my eyes.

Now I need to translate the knitting notes into directions that will explain to someone who has never knit on an edging just how its done. Wish me luck.
ETA: also have to re-do the "explanatory text", because darn I got so excited I put "incoming" where I meant "outgoing".

Sounds like you're having a little too much fun with the software features! I bet the finished pattern will be great as a result...

Yeah you! I figured it out somewhat last week when I was making a Ravel Rai$er avatar -- and I refuse to tell you how many years I've been using a computer but will allow it all started with green print on a black screen.

Love the look of the scarf - both the color and the knit on edge.

Oh, dear. Cindy, you can throw away your plastic hair rollers too.

Knitting looks great!

Plastic hair rollers? Are you kidding? I'll stick with my bobbie pins, thank you very much!
