Thank you for sharing, I actually find it easier to follow written instructions rather than a chart. I think it is because I learnt to knit 35 years ago by my grandmother. Charts seem to make my eyes go funny. I love your pattern books by Sharon Miller and would like to purchase some for my collection. do the Sharon Miller patterns also come with written instructions as well as the charts.
Would you also mind letting me know where you purchased your coned lace weight from please, it looks a lovely yarn to work with.
Beautiful work and fantastic to see a gentleman knitting :)
