I decided I'd make up a chart for my Forget Me Not Dots blanket today. Why? What on earth was I thinking?

The square wasn't too bad but now I've started the border and I'm wondering if I've bitten off more than I can chew.  It's not even like a have any charting software or anything!  What's that thing about "the schemes o mice an' men" again?  It's Burn's night tonight too isn't it?  Maybe that's why I can't help feeling like I'm ganging agley!  

Oh well, in for a penny, in for a pound I guess... wish me luck 😉

  3. I get a kick out of the terms my UK crochet friends use. I'm sure I use American terms that are just as mysterious sometimes. I'm not sure what "Burn's night" is or "ganging agley" but I do know that blanket is gorgeous and your patterns are always so well done. I know this one will be just as wonderful.

    1. Ha ha, yes sorry for the slightly obscure reference (internally speaking!), it's a Scottish thing. Robert Burns was a Scottish poet who is celebrated on Burn's Night in January. He wrote about the plans of mice and men often 'going wrong', or 'gang agley' as he put it!

  9. Hi Sandra, I don't know how easy it is to use but there's this free open source software that some designers use to make charts. It's called inkscape. Here's a link to the website:
    https://inkscape.org/en/
    Amerz (on Ravelry) is a pattern/chart editor. Here's a link to her blog about using inkscape: http://crochetamerz.blogspot.com/2017/05/stitch-diagrams.html?m=1
    Maybe this will help.

    Really excited to get your pattern!
