I don't think you'd be able to see the errors from a galloping horse, which for something I'm not putting in a competition is a good rule of thumb.
I found that I got completely lost trying to read and follow standard written grafting directions. They just make my head hurt. But if I look at the diagrams in directions like this and then just tell myself where my needle should go to get knit stitches or purl stitches, then I do ok. Not perfect, but ok. This might be a result of being a very visual person. It's like doing the long tail cast on, who can figure out these directions until you feel them in your hands?
