Kim, I'm so sorry I haven't posted anything! I have been working on it, but I didn't have my computer. There was a bunch of spyware on it and it took a week for the guy to fix it. I just got it back tonight. I'm at about the same place as you are. The yarn I'm using is Cascade 220, 100% peruvian wool in the color Pepper. It's very squishy yarn. A pleasure to knit with. I'm using winnie's modifications.
