I'm still having problems. I cut my file size down to 24K and less than 400 pixels and I just get an upload failed message. I followed the instructions to the letter.

Thanks GG!

Do you think I could do a 2x2 rib pattern on the leg part instead of the stockinette?

Very nice and cheerful. The tea shop I frequent uses them and they do work. I'm lazy though and go there rather than making tea on my own. I'd have to get a tea pot before I knit the cosy.
