A Tip to Make Knitting Life Simpler

Whenever I have a challenging project I bring out highlighters in various colors. Each element of a line (charted or otherwise) can be colorcoded. This way you can just glance at the line and know what to do. In the Hemlock Ring Shawl (Brooklyntweed) I only needed 2 colors.
I hope this tip helps a few knitters out there. It is so simple.

Thanks for the tip I'll do that in future. Since my eyes got bad I find it really difficult to keep up with a pattern. I seem to keep reading the same line over and over.

I know what you mean. I also use the magnetic strips on the metal board to keep my eyes going to the right line. Every little thing helps!
