Kathy, YEA! This is good news and I'm totally happy for you. I hope this works for others.
It's interesting that the light and dark colors are different -- this does happen for some brands as they add different things to their fibers and dyes for the different colors. They really ought to put out their own charts or warnings: Consumer beware, our dark colors are thicker than our lighter ones! LOL! It'll never happen, but a girl can hope, right?
Have fun cutting! And feel free to show off the results -- you know I love it!
