Thank you so much for your great review! I too have been knitting for years and I am also an experienced knitter, but I too struggled with charts until recently .... my husband bought me a magnetic board (from iriss bishop designs at the knitting and stitching show at the g-mex centre manchester) which after you have written out the instructions (if you've done this on the computer simply enlarge and print, or if hand written scan it into the computer and print, or if you don't have a printer? Photo the instructions and then upload and print off, then if you enlarge and print off the chart , you can then place both in the holder and then use the magnetic bar that comes with it to read the chart line by line.. It works brilliantly for me as I don't lose my place on the pattern when watching TV.
Best regards, Sarah
