Well, hopefully what I have done with my other project will work. I stopped knitting it because it is white and I was going to be spending three days on the road as a passenger and it seemed like it would be too much of a challenge to keep it clean. I began knitting my nearly finished and then completely frogged sweater and would like to at least finish the body of it before I put it down, slowly but slowly, I will get there.
Well, to make a long story even longer, my husband taught me how to use Excel for graphing my projects; I had never knitted from a graph before and I am completely hooked. So now I print out my graphs and write notes on them.
Keeping my fingers crossed, when I get back to my shawl, I am hoping that I actually took decent enough notes to be able to continue
it without running into any snags.
