Getting started

Stumbled across the GAAA book while on vacation last month. Couldn't wait to start on it! I'm a (self-taught, mainly cold-season!) knitter of about 15 years, but I've never used charts before and my most complicated projects to this point are socks with easy cable designs. Just started a little practice square (Belanger) last night to get my courage up before I invest in $100+ dollars in yarn. :-) I'm up for the challenge though--I hope! Any advice?

I have just started the GAAA too! Also am pretty much self-taught, but now have a LYS here, and am getting so much from it. I don't read charts, so I stick with the text version. Susan Rainey square is over half done...mini sweater is easy (so far!), and just cast on the Carol Adams squre. I advise you to read the pattern over and over until you feel you have an understanding of it. I buy my yarn one skein at a time. I hope we both are successful!
