From the Sex and the Knitty issue:

http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer04/PATTlolita.html

These are very hot. And I know I need a sexy project to celebrate Spring, after a Winter full of scarves, sweaters, and other heavy projects.

I bought the suggested yarn (Elann Esprit) which is on sale at Elann.com right now.

Has anyone started or want to join me on this?

(I didn't notice another thread with this project, but if there is one, please direct me to it, thanks!)

I've been lusting after these for a while! I just might have to join you with these, though I'd use a different yarn I think...

Great! I think I'll be casting on sometime later this week. I have a couple of pouches to finish up.

Homegirleh: What yarn are you planning to use? And what color?

Oooh! I've been wanting to make these as well.  I bought the yarn about a month ago- Elann Esprit in purple. 
I'd love to join the knitalong, but I don't know if I'd actually get much accomplished in a reasonable time. Blasted school!

Esprit is a cotton yarn, no? I cant find much info on it. Is it regular worsted weight? Sock weight? any ideas?
I'll probably end up grabbing some plain ol' peaches n cream cotton, work them up on some really big needles and just have the toe and heel made with smaller needles. What can I say? I love the improvisation. I think *any* project on 4s would drive me mad.

Esprit is a cotton yarn with a little bit of elastic thrown in.

I've never knitted from the toe up before, and I'm liking it. I'm up to the short heel part on mine. Anyone have links on short heel how-tos?

The lace pattern is nice, though I did mess up a little. But hell, who cares? its only the foot part anyway, and its not noticeable.

I ended up starting the fishnets from SnB instead. I bought two balls of Cascade Fixation in black to use for them. I just aquired an office job, and needed something vaguely respectable to wear. Fishnets are cool with them, but I don't know how they'd feel about lace-up purple ones. Smiley I'll get to Lolita eventually....

An unexciting picture of my progress:



This is stretched over a calculator.

I haven't picked this up since I got to the short heel part, in part because I've never attempted it before and need to concentrate on what I'm doing.

So all that progress is gone and I've had to start all over (TWICE!). My dpn accidently slipped out and I couldn't save the stitches.
I'm now opting to do the larger size (about 8 more stitches).
This isn't the MOST fun I've had with a pattern, but I really want these fishnets. Sure, it'd be easier to go out and buy some but now I feel invested in the project.

tinygoatstacker: how are your SNB fishnets going? I noticed they are knit on straight needles, and wondered if it is going by quickly. I would love to see a pic of them.
