I'm restarting this for the third time...out of sheer laziness/distractedness, I always seem to mess up either on the first or second row. I gave up on the invisible cast-on, because mine kept coming out incredibly loose no matter what I did, so I'm going cable cast-on instead...wish me luck!

I just started the edging lace.  I'm so excited, I can't wait to get this thing done!  Big road trip with Mom is happening Thursday, so hopefully I can put a serious dent in it during the next week...'cause I know she won't let me drive her new car!

I just started mine too, but since I wasn't sure of the exact weight of my yarn (sure looks thinner than laceweight), and I really didn't want to use 00 needles, I started on US 2's.  I've only knit a few rows, but it looks really open. 

I guess I'll continue on and see what happens.  I can't really see any pattern yet, so that may be adding to my nervousness.

I've got a couple progress pics:


I'm a little over 1/2 way done with the center. I'm doing it all in one piece.


Close-up of how the pattern looks right now. I really want to finish this so I can block it! I want to know how it will look!

Yarn: Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere 2-ply
Needles: size 4 addi turbos.
I feel so rich when I work on this, fancy yarn, fancy needles, fancy pattern. Oh the decadence!

What kind of yarn did people use? Just curious. I think I might make this and give it away as a Christmas present.

Blocking will make such a big difference! I love how it looks.

I'm using Alpaca Mini Delight, and other than it being remarkably similar to knitting with dental floss, I like it.

AAARRRGGGHHH!  I worked on my edging while on a road trip with my Mom last week.  I got to about halfway around the FIRST long side and RAN OUT OF YARN!!!!

NBD - I have some more at home, I just have to dye it...oh wait...I DON'T HAVE ANY MORE IN THAT GAUGE!!!!!!

I just ordered some more.  5-14 days in shipping and then I have to dye it.  Maybe, someday, I'll finish this thing!

Okay, I finally figured out a provisional cast-on method and I've started. I'm eight rows into the first lace repeat. This is my first time working with such thin yarn and needles, so it took me a few rows to get used to them. Now I have something of a rhythm going, so it is getting easier. I am using Alpaca with a Twist yarn in the black pearl colorway.

I'm doing the edging lace edging right now, and it's working up unexpectedly fast. I'm using knitpicks yarn on size 4 circs. I don't remember the name of it, but it's a laceweight 100% alpaca in the silver colorway. I modified the pattern to make it smaller, as the intended recipient is incredibly petite. Hopefully, I'll be done in a couple days, and I can post pictures!!
