    I LOVE this pattern (by the way saw you on Knitty Gritty) and I was wondering if it could be done on circular needles and how do you switch a pattern you know can be done in circular into that from the straight needle method? You are an inspiration to ALL of us with a yarn “addiction”…LOL
    Thanks so much for any help you can give. Ivy the “knitaholic”
