Hey!  I ordered the pattern & the yarn and am just waiting for it to get delivered to my house.  I'm subbing with Elann Endless Summer Sonata in Capri Blue.  I can't *wait* to start this one and I know it will go fast because I have exams and I always need a good procrastination method.

I'd rushed on finishing the Honeymoon Cami so I would be ready to go when the yarn got here, and when it didn't show today I was sort of at a quandry at what to do when Honeymoon started blocking.  What to do!

let me ask a really retarded question which i think i already know the answer to...

when you say to check needle sizes, what exactly do you mean?  I'm guessing that it means the needle sizes indicated on the packaging of the yarn will indicate which yarn is suitable....for example this pattern calls for a size 3 circular needle, which i'm assuming means sport weight or finger weight yarn... am i off on this?

I appologize, I've got such rudimentary knoweldge of knitting right now that maybe i shouldn't be giving this a go....

here's a price comparison for 7 balls of Rowan 4-ply cotton (I always order an extra ball) including shipping:

$51.46 - www.needleworkunlimited.com
$48.92 - www.yarn-shop.co.uk (from UK)
$44.55 - www.richesseonline.com (free shipping on orders over $75)
$46.09 - www.yarnmarket.com (they don't have the new colors yet - but free shipping over $100)
$51.70 - www.theknittinggarden.com

Has anyone ordered from any of these sites? Any feedback on which are more reputable than others???

Can't wait to start this!

I found a good deal on ebay for some of the Allure (pink) Rowan 4-ply. 10 balls for $30 plus $12 shipping. Still debating on whether to order it though. For the XL or the XXL size, would someone mind telling me how many balls she recommends?

so is anyone having issues with the lace pattern like i am? i keep ending up with the wrong amount of stitches which has caused me to frog the damn thing about six times and "un-knit" countless rows.


i am more than frustrated at this.

Did you get the correction Stefanie sent out? There was an error in the pattern but she fixed it and sent out the correction last week.

Yikes!  Thanks Sweet Rolll!  I bought the pattern but didn't receive a correction (or maybe I bought it after they were sent...how would I know??)   I got the pattern on Thursday. 

Rockadot, could it be that you're leaving out YOs?  I know that is my biggest problem when doing lace.  For the first several rows I count stitches after every row.  It's a little tedious, but it makes it much easier to find the mistake that way.  Even when I'm comfortable with the pattern, I still make sure I am counting the rows frequently so I always have the right amount of stitches.  I'm sure once you get into your rhythm it will start going smoothly. 

I'm should be getting my yarn any day now.  I can't wait to cast on!  You can see finished a finished Orangina here (and also read a really funny blog!).

YOWZA! That finished Orangina looks fantastic! I just need to buy some yarn...

Oh, and I got the correction on Tuesday, March 29th, so anyone who bought after that shouldn't worry.
