So it isn't a sampler. I have one or two of those on my needles, but I had a design just exploding out, so I gave in and cast-on. Here are my materials. Beads and lace. How novel... And a larger view of the swatch crumpled on the needle... One item worth sharing is the way I set my charts up. Usually, I don't need anything special to read my charts. I can memorize a basic chart very quickly. But some charts don't fit in my brain that neatly. This design is one of them. I often knit in meetings and at conferences; Also while watching a movie. To help prevent errors, I do this:
I copy the chart once for each charted row and use a highlighter to mark one row on each sheet. I trim them and clip them together. When I finish a row I move that sheet to the bottom of the stack and the next row is highlighted and waiting for me! Lovely.
