Thanks everyone!!

Lintu~ Here (http://www.freshislefibers.com/Patterns/shadowknittinglinks.htm)is a website with differen patterns for Illusion knitting... I had seen a project that fellow KHer did (chrislt8) that first got me curious...my secret pal and I also talked about it... my goal is to make an Elvis scarf :teehee:...I thought the socks would give me a good start on understanding how the charts worked since it's different from reg. charts... so then I can chart him...
