I'm glad you found Knitting Help. To not ask for help would have been dumb, asking lets you find out just how helpful and nice the people here are and get on with your knitting. I hope you stick around and join in the discussions. You could even ask more questions should you have them again.
Cheating is an option. . . . Cheaters never win and winners never cheat, but smart knitters who want to retain an iota of sanity do, cheerfully. ~~Kory Stamper
