I'm not exactly sure Probably no more than a few whole days, total. I started working on it over Thanksgiving, quit for a bit, worked on it for an hour or two at a time for a while, and finished around the 15th of December. The lace works up pretty quickly once you get the pattern down.
so how many balls of sws goes into one of these? 4ish?
Darn! I was going to buy the yarn today, but the pattern said about 412 yards...I had 4 skeins in my hands but kind of choked on the price (I'm a cheap yarn kind of girl), even if it was 30% off. I might wait for a better sale, or use a few coupons to buy what I need...maybe I'll go back tomorrow if the yarn is still on sale...because I just did the math and it really isn't as bad as I thought...silly me...
I used almost three balls, I still have a little left over
awwww, that sucks I had originally bought 4 balls and just took the extra one back to Michaels yesterday...they were having some kind of sale when I bought it too. I usually get whatever el-cheapo acrylic blend is on sale, but the sws is definitely worth it I think.
