Here's my neckwarmers. Unblocked (naturally) and in need of some buttons (have to go and find my button stash).
I got so excited about this fishtail lace that I am making a top out of it! 
Thanks woolgathered for this pattern!


I think I made mine shorter, though. And I used bigger needles and 1 less pattern repeat on the oatmeal colored one.

HelenaJane, I love your neckwarmers, they are darling. I am going to try making another one once i get a few things finished. I am terrible about that.

And amusingly, I am doing the exact same thing, I loved the look of the lace and wanted to make another sweater using Wool of the Andes to see how it would work out so I am altering the hourglass sweater in Last Minute Gits. I am putting lace on the bottom as well as the sleeves. I can't wait to see how it works out.

Good luck with your top, I will look forward to seeing it when you get it started and finished. Wink

Thanks Irish witch! I actually liked how yours came out! There's more LACE! (me love my lace) You did 4 repeats? It's funny how different these all came out!
There's 2 things about the fishtail that helped me bigtime. One was that every pattern repeat is contained in between 2 purl stitches. So I only have to back up a stitch or 2 when I make a mistake or rather I can identify I made a mistake by the time I get to the last p st.
And the other thing I did was fold a piece of paper in 1/3 rds, wrote in the lace pattern for the 3 rows by #'s on each third, folded it and sat it next to me on the table so if my daughter gets in my face or I zone in while getting sucked into a tv show I can remember where I was! Does that make sense?
I want to see your sweater when it's done too!

Those look absolutely beautiful! I am so proud! *tear* No, seriously, I am. I never tried to write a pattern involving lace and somewhat fancy stuff, I am so happy people like it!

I LOVE it! Wait till you see the top I made! (it's like a very large neckwarmer!) I can't thank you enough for the inspiration. Woolgathered, I need your name, I am naming the piece in honor of YOU!!!!!!

LOL, you don't have to do that! But, it's Lelah. Hee. It's pronounced like the song Layla.

This is so simple and cute! I love it!
I've seen the Lelah pattern, but I had no idea something like this inspired it.
Awesome!
