I'm in... after a fashion.

I had no stashed yarn in the required weight, but I found this :

And I hope that by using double-thickness it'll come out close enough.  I've done 12 rows so far this morning and this is the result :

The lovely lacey pattern's not very obvious, is it?!  I dunno if this is down to the fact I am using two strands of yarn, or it might be because of the YO's - how do you work these on the purl row?  I have always tended to purl into the back of them because, well its easier and there's no point in making life more tricky than need be Tongue  But I realised as I started working this that that's probably wrong and I have been purling into the front of the stitch and now I'm getting very small holes.  I guess the lesson I should take from this is if it aint broke...

Anyhoo, I shall probably soldier on and see what it's like after blocking; maybe the pattern will open up a bit more then *fingers crossed*.  I look forward to seeing everyone else's progress Smiley

Yay, my first post!  Cool

Here's my Sophie; I ran short of the brown Jo Sharp yarn so I made the second handle pink and threw together some flowers to tie it all together (IMO).  This was my first attempt at felting and I was surprised how much it shrank in the washing machine, thankfully after a bit of tugging and pulling it turned out big enough to fit my essentials in.  Next time I'll twist the handles more, ever the perfectionist!
