EDITED: Opinions on my FI charts
Hey everyone! Thanks for the advice and encouragement! I think I've charted out the two mittens, and I just want some feedback because this is a huge first for me. Let me know what you think! Thanks :D

**It's a link because resizing it made it WAY too blurry :(**

It's a lizard, of course! Not hard to see at all. Did I get it right? Just know, if you haven't done graphed charting before, that because there are always more rows to the inch than stitches to the inch, that the image will distort once knitted if you don't compensate for it. But if it's on a small item, it may not be so bad.

This graph paper allows for that, though. They're not perfect squares - it's actually the chart from Hello Yarn, her Generic Norwegian Mitten chart.

I'm so glad you can see it! I can't believe I made it up and it looks decent!! :P lol

Well if it isn't a lizard it might need some adjusting.
It looks great. I can't wait to see how they turn out.

It looks like the little Geico Gecko. My dh just loves that little lizzard. I am so glad he did not see this. He would want me to knit it for him.You did a good job~

It sounds like you're on the right track! Except now that you've revealed this talent, people on this site might start begging you to graph out their designs!

Now I'm just waiting for the yarn to come in... :D
