Oh, these patterns are all so great! I LOVE
the Bob pattern! Jazz, I hope you do that one!
Denise, thanks! Okay, she says to do it with cotton or other innelastic yarn. Now THAT makes sense to me. Cool trick! Also makes sense for especially tall/long garments like Mary's that are just so darned weighty.
If anyone's looking for some yarn steals, I just posted a thread here
about yarn.com's biggest sale of the year, which is this week, ending Jan. 2nd.
