Dunno about that but one of the reasons knitting is so interesting is the learning and discovery. I think this is true for most anything that involves detail. Don'tcha just love to tackle something new and be able to stand back and admire your handiwork?

Indeed, it's a great feeling! I just hope one day I can overcome my math fear and expand my horizons

SWEATER WIZARD
This program generates schematics and text directions for sweaters customized to the knitter's specifications. Sweaters may be charted for flat or round knitting, using any gauge. Sweater Wizard is an excellent tool for teachers to quickly work up projects and instructions. System requirements: Windows 95, 98, ME, NT, 2000, XP (Vista compatible). Compact Disc.



It creates all 'types' of sweaters and tanks, and with different 'shaping'...such as form fitting, normal fit, loose fit, etc.

I created several summery cami-tanks for my little granddaughters, just recently. They are all printed and ready to go.

The patterns also include schematics, an unheard of nicety these days.

The SWEATER WIZARD is not your designer. You are the DESIGNER, he is your architect. You bring your swatches and designs to the table, he draws up the blueprints for ya.

If you need more information about how SWEATER WIZARD works, let me know!

If you're knitting a doily project and have 6 sts per inch...

9(diameter of doily) x 3.1416 = 28.2744 (number of inches in circumference)

28.2744 x 6(sts per inch) = 169.6464 (roughly 170 sts)
