All your projects are beautiful! I especially love the soft colors of the scarf and hat. You certainly have taught yourself well!

Well, charts are read from the bottom up, r-l then l-r

if you get confused, you can rewrite the chart into rows/ stitches. (that's what I do- charts make me crazy). I bet readers in the how-to board here would have great links and ideas for reading charts if you wanted to ask your question there. They are so helpful to me.

your FO;s look nice! I hope you find a source for yarn and accessories where you are- I know I'm lucky to have so many choices!
