Color My World

Color Coding Knitting Pattern Charts
I like to color code knitting pattern charts. Some of the symbols used are so similar that I find I have to look very closely, double and triple checking, to make sure I am looking at the right symbol. This slows me way down!
By coloring the symbols with distinctly different colors it is much easier and quicker for me to see what it is I am doing.

Color Coding Knitting Stitch Markers
I like to use left over scraps of yarn as markers. I choose very different colors here too. In this case, one color marks the beginning of the round and the other marks where I am making increases in the pattern.

That's a really good idea, thanks for sharing. And thanks for the nice comment about my header. I made it from one of my pictures at this site
and it was really easy.
