Hi I like the look of this, but as a relative novice I cannot work out how many balls of wool to get - how is it sold? What weight is a skein of this wool as on Amazon they seem to sell it by weight. I admit to being confused and not knowing how much wool I am to look for - sorry. alisonreturnerto knitting

I personally think the idea of changing the shortcut for different stitches is very silly. The first time I seen M1 I thought what the heck is this then I finally found another pattern that used it and had it in the explanation of st. abbreviations. Why not just use increase like it is doing. I have a book for all different kind of stitching (knitting, crocheting etc) and M1 is no where in it.

In step 4: (K6, M1) -- what does M1 mean. I've never seen this before.
