Andy, you might try posting your questions in the "How-to Questions" section of this forum. Those questions get answered much more quickly than they do here in the "Knit-Alongs" section which is not checked regularly by many people.
Also, don't be afraid to start a new thread for each new question if you want to. There's no law against that!
And yes, you can get help here, you just need to abide by copyright and forum rules. No biggie--it's something we all have to do!
