Salmonmac that is such a relief, I had a feeling there was something wrong with the pattern. I've started using the yarn for the Rachel project on this cardigan, just to get my confidence up.
Its a very quick knit and the yarn I'm using should be still very easy to obtain if I want to get more. If not I get some new yarn and start my Rachel again once the cardi is done.
You and Suzeeq have been so helpful with this project, if I could buy you both a cuppa tea and some cake I would but for now the virtual will have to suffice.
