That's good to hear. I was considering doing this with as much of the monkeys as possible. There is a bear pattern from Debbie Bliss that I want to make also, and I am definately going to do that in the round. Just not too fond of sewing up projects. Call me lazy - lol.
Oooo, good job. I drove around to 3 different book stores in April to get the May issue, ended up putting my name on a waiting list. B & N does not always get every issue of SK in, but at least they were willing to call me when it did come in. I was starting to think I wouldn't be able to get the June issue, but they finally received a few copies towards mid-June.
I've thought about getting a subscription, but don't really want another monthly magazine sitting around. Do you use the magazine for anything else than the Alan Dart patterns? That's all I'm basically interested in, and at that - even though I love his patterns, I only want a select few.
