Thank you, Artlady
Many thanks, Artlady.
I got this pattern quite a while ago but haven't been able to start it yet. I have, however, been reading all the posts in the KAL and thought that your ideas about the bobbles and the flat sleeves were excellent modifications that I'll definitely be using.
There'll probably be others, too, as I go along, as well as problems that I hit such as sizing (my daughter's only 5'3") so I'll definitely be reading through the posts on a regular basis to pick up other tips.
I'm sure that there is somewhere on here that I can just click to say "thanks" but I can't find it anywhere so I'll just have to write my thanks to you and to all the other lovely posters on the KAL for their observations and recommendations.
