Thanks so much for the link to the video. I found quite a few there that were helpful.
I like the idea of contrasting yarn, I will give that a try. I think I too would probably lose them. Don't have cats, but seem to have gremlins that come out when I'm not around and hide things from me. Or, maybe it's just the memory monster.
I agree that it will seem less confusing once I give it a try.
Reading all the posts on this site is very helpful and inspiring.
