I enjoy the challenge of knitting lace. I much much prefer to do it from charts. I find written instruction not to be my thing. I also love many of the lace patterns collected by Barabara Walker, especially in her first two collections. Does anyone know if there is a collection of these patterns that have been charted -- a book, a site, a group, a DVD?
Theoretically, I could do it myself, but frankly, I don't want to, and why reinvent the wheel?. LOL
My second question is somewhat related. I am interested in getting some good knit pattern writing software. YOu know, the kind where you write something and it automatically creates a chart and vice versa. I have heard of such things, and have seen a couple advertised but which is the best (and not too difficult to use for my non-technical brain)?
If any of you guys can point me toward answers for these 2 question (or one of them) I would be grateful.
