I just got off the phone with a very good friend who cheered me up considerably. Thanks – I needed that.
But while I was sitting around feeling sorry for myself, I was also going through Book 2 of The Knitting Experience by Sally Melville. In response to your question, Emma, I think I’m going to do the Basic Pullover on page 63 first. I’ve got a bag full of Siridar Ultra that should be about the right gauge.
