Hi everyone,

Thanks for inviting me to participate in your KAL! As you can see, I've already got my yarn all set to go. It's the Jaeger Extra Fine Merino in 'Blue Star', which was one of my Christmas presents to myself and just arrived this week in the mail! I have 20 balls, so if I decide to lengthen it, or have any problems??, I'll at least have sufficient wool.

As some of you suggested, I'm in the process of writing out the pattern, firstly because my printer is doing strange things to the pattern, but secondly, I want to make sure I'm understanding it all. I've been writing out the charts from the online pattern, as my printer isn't picking up a lot of important details ... :P*****!! I was going along fine until I reached panels B & E (I saved the long ones 'til last!) and I tried to determine the difference between 4-stRC/LC and 4-st RPC/LPC. For the life of me, when I look at the pattern on the computer, I can't tell the difference on the charts between them ... the icons all look identical. (And yes, I am wearing my glasses, which was my husband's first response).

Could someone help me out by perhaps either telling me which panels have which cables, or better yet, if you happen to have it already typed out and are willing to share, would you kindly leave me a comment on my blog here, with your email address and I'll send you mine. I'll make it worth your while :)

**Update December 21st ... all is well! I tried the super, duper printer at work and everything printed off perfectly this time, so I'm good to go! **

The yarn looks luscious! I can't wait to buy mine!

And of course you know we've been e-mailing about the pattern.

I hope you can get some help with that from somebody from the KAL!

Wish I could help - I have yet to buy the yarn for SB. Your yarn selection is scrumptious - great color choice.
