Are you - and your eyes! - tired of wading through seas of text in order to knit those luscious gansey, lace, cable and colorwork patterns? Do you have to regretfully take a pass on a pattern that the designer indicates is "only charted" and not written out? Join us for Chart Reading class - nothing mystical about it except for learning how to demystify charts and speed up your knitting!
