    Best I can tie stitch counting back to is analytical thinking?

Whelp, you start with a pattern. Then you have to size it. Then you have to try it out with your yarn and needles a few times with adjustments. Then you run everything through your conversion factor. It's like a recipe except with trial and error, multiple conversion factors and the necessity of remembering multiple different things with their hands.

OH, thanks. Yup, that looks about right - 'proportional thinking' and 'patterns's love child... on steroids. Damn, I have an added layer of respect for flac's level of patience.

Knitting is no joke. I've watched my wife dismantle 3 hours of work before because somewhere, back there, she's off a stitch.

Eeehh, this is dusting off memories of making my Tallit bag for my bar mitzvah from needle point. Some coming of age gift...
