Thankyou Braden for your fast reply
Thank you suzeeq you have been a great help... arrg I think I will have to try & remember the different names of plys of yarns. Umm you get the picture 4ply = fingering weight etc , etc. I was all in a frazzle as I wanted to get started right away. Well I took your advice and I now have about 4cms to go on the hat will post a pic when done. Oh by the way love your name I have a fondness of the name suzeeq as I used to listen to her when I was alot younger like 25 yrs ago ewww now I'm showing my age hehe, and also when my partner met my mum thats what he called my mum as her name was Susan but saddly she passed away just before christmas. Oh by the way I am from Melbourne, Australia. So you hit the nail on the head with where I am from.
Anyway thanks again for the help I appreciate it.
