Yes, that helps me a lot. I've printed your response to keep as a reference. Thank you!
I'm making the Garter Mug Cozies in the Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts magazine. It's my first time to use the double point needles and I'm very excited with the results. I was afraid to try, but I watched the DVD and on about the fourth try I was able to get the hang of it. I've finished one that doesn't look so great but I'm ready to try it again. Right now, I'm off to work. Even thought it's not perfect, I'm so pleased that I may try to post a picture of it tonight.
Thanks again, have a great day!
