Charts Aren't English

I have never read a chart before. Any pattern that I have seen has had the row description below it, so I just jumped to this row-by-row explanation and ignored the chart. Onto the CPH. How hard could it be, I thought. Well, my cables are now reversed.

My lovely knitters at our mini-BBQ alerted me of this. Wabi Sabi Allena said. Hmm, maybe this looks a lot yummier than the written pattern. I'm using Lorna's Laces Worsted and it was well worth the purchase. The most luscious, springiest yarn. I can't wait to finish it.

And the other projects that have kept me busy - Chevron Scarf and the Monkey socks. Remember, silly me, mediumweight means some heavy sock yarn! These huge socks would never fit my lovely Philly friend. Oh well. At least Daddy's feet will be warm.

if you hadn't pointed it out, I never would have noticed. And the yarn really does look scrumptious! You'll finish it in time for fall :)
