Thank you once again for your help Ingrid. I'll go for the cable cast on at the beginning - I like working this cast on. I usually end up trying something first while hubby is on the computer to see if my ingenuity works and then end up coming to Ingrid for her wisdom on the right
way to do it! I should sort myself out and go straight for an Ingrid SOS!
Many thanks as always for keeping me knitting in the highlands whatever snags I hit. Hope this helps another knitter out there too! Just what I like about this forum. So much info, so much help.
