To try to speed up my progress, I came up with a couple of tips. Placing a marker at stitch number one of each of the 28 stitch repeats was my first ingenious idea.
Tip number two stems from my 'over-the-hill' eyesight. Even thought I scanned and enlarged the chart to make it easier to read, the 'ping-ponginess' of turning from knitting to chart a
k zillion times in each long round frustrated me. So, I wrote out a shorthand version of each repeat, one per page, in my little knitting notebook.
With those two 'speed' tips, last night I finished row 16. Paint drying I tell you.
