So 10 x 12 = 120 with 8 left over. You just have to adjust to make up for the .8 and vary your st count. And when I say m1, any inc that you prefer will work.

I did what you did last night but it was late and I'd taken a couple darvacet so (LOL) brain function was not at it's best. I did the formula in the Vogue book and that was weird and another different forumla in another book, but I THOUGHT by making a little chart it would be even easier. ((Math not a strong suit) So this morning my engineer husband came up with a 4 or 5 step mathematical solution that made my eyes spin ... heheheheh Before I tried the formulas last night I did in my head the 10 into 128 with 8 left over .... guess I should have just gone with that minus the darvacet. Thanks again.
