women of a certain age are like sunflowers; they know how to turn their faces to the sun.

Knowledge, without common sense, says Lee, is folly; without method, it is waste; without kindness, it is fanaticism; without religion, it is death. But with common sense, it is wisdom with method, it is power; with clarity, it is beneficence; with religion, it is virtue, and life, and peace.

-Austin Farrar

Apparently, my software is a Reader's Digest sort of condensed version. Incomplete directions in the Galadriel's Mirror key for bobbles & wrapped stitches could use a little clarification.

Bobbles are 5 stitch bobbles. K5 in stitch by either:
  • k,p,k,p,k or...
  • k front & back twice, k1
Turn & knit 5 back on wrong side
Turn & knit 5 on right side
Turn & k2tog, k1, k2tog
Turn & sk2p

Wrapped stitches are knit either before or after wrapping (both ways work)

Sorry for the confusion - new version of old software...
