Oh yes I mean British Columbia Canada. I thought about that after I posted. I should have been more spacific, sorry.

Greetings from the east Mel! I have a couple of knitting patterns up on my website where all the directions are written out, no abbreviations at all. They can be found here.

Hello, Mel from another Canadian, here in Southern Ontario. Something that might help with deciphering the patterns when you first begin, is sticky notes. I use them to mark my spot as I knit when I need to. You can put one under what you are knitting, and one at the end. Heck, you could make a sticky note box! It is a tool for keeping track, and isolating one thing at a time while you learn might help. Proud of you! How's the dishcloth coming along? samm
