I had many problems along the way trying to figure out how to scale the lettering using "knitters graph paper" (the graph isn't square) and pulled out the lettering numberous times. Considering I had once called this project "hideous" I think it turned out semi-ok. I still need to work on that duplicate stitch thing or maybe just learn intarsia or fair isle.

This (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall06/PATTbacktoschool.html)is where I got the pattern and the duplicate stitch idea.

That's really nice!

Knitter's graph paper isn't square because stitches aren't usually square. ;-)
