what is better than knitting? charting your knitting on spreadsheets...! I found a great knitting font that you can install right into excel, or word if you like it that way, and make some pattern charts! this makes my life a whole lot easier. much better than drawing these things out on graph paper. you can cut, paste, copy, increase, decrease, filter, split and merge your pattern into an easy spreadsheet.
