Progress & Graph

My progress so far!

I found that I really needed to have a color card. I used to cross-stitch quite a bit, and used the Lo-Ran card system to organize DMC floss. The Master Cards turned out to be the perfect thing for my LaJ yarns:

Right now I am working on making my graph more readable. I have gotten quite frustrated because of the sleeve markings which obfuscate the lines demarking color changes, so I am translating the chart into Excel. On the right you see my scanned chart in Fireworks, where I have outlined the sleeve in red. On the left is my Excel spreadsheet.

Very swank! It's always kind of exciting when you first get to see a little pattern peeping through after acres of edge treatment...

Wow Sheila! A Fabulous charting job. I took a course in Excel - but NEVER learned to do what you have done. Outstanding! Do you give lessons?

Wonderful to see the leaves emerging from the Bramble. Gosh I am truly impressed. You HAVE been busy.

Congratulations on your incredible progress.
