Today I have started, and frogged back, the start of the front left panel of A Cardigan For Arwen 4 times. The first time I realized I was reading the chart wrong, the other times once I got going it just looks wrong like nothing is really lining up as it should.
One more attempt tonight, then I'll go work on something else before I drive myself betty. But this time I photocopied the charts and am writing in k, p etc on the darn squares. Maybe that will work better.
