Oh and about the cute tank top that Julie posted--is it that it's such a cute tank or such a damned cute little girl?!?
Thanks, m.s. ...

I had a copy of SNB from the library a while back, but never got a chance to read much of it. I'll grab it again. And after bragging about Knitting for Dummies on another thread, I guess I could go whip it out & see if there are instructions in there!! Sheesh!

And, yes, that little girl looks like she was made to model. What a cutie patootie!
