I am trying very hard to knit a blanket (http://knittikins.wordpress.com/patterns/levis-baby-blanket/, for reference) for a friend having a baby. So far, I have restarted this blanket FOUR times.
Two things are important in this sad, sad query: I have never read/knit from a chart before and I'm left handed.
So, the first two times I started I did not realize that patterns are read from right to left. It looked horrible in some places and fine in others and I went to my lovely LYS today to try and get some help. They pointed me on the right direction there and I went on my way.
My concern now is-- a chart is read from right to left because you knit from right to left? I knit from left to right... what do I do now?!
