Hi Orangina-alongers.

I don't want to get in the way of any discussions you have, but but want to make it clear that if you ordered a pattern any time before March 28, and I sent you the one just called "Orangina", then you have an old one which contains the typo.  I sent out corrected ones to everyone who ordered before the 28th.  If you haven't gotten yours, please let me know.

If you have one called "Orangina-updated" then you have the one that is correct.

I also just want to add that the typo just makes the lace pattern repeat over 10 stitches, rather than 9.  There's an extra k1 in the middle of both the RS and WS instructions, so, even using the original pattern, your lace will still line up and look fine, you'll just have a few extra stitches in the width of your garment.

As always, if you have questions, please email me.  I'm never far from the computer and would really like to see all of your projects come out looking great!!

I'm really busy at the moment, I have a job interview in CA next week and am trying to prepare a 45-minute presentation about my work.  So I may not be in the best of contact for the next, say, 10 days.  But, I'm still answering mail and will try to help however I can.

Good Luck!  And send me pictures when you're finished!!

-Stefanie.

Thanks, Mojisha, and I'm so glad to hear that the lace is going better, Rockadot!!

Sometimes lace takes some serious Brain-Training.

I started a lace shawl about 2 years ago, and if I work on it consistently, I can remember the lace pattern.  But each time I put it down for a couple of weeks and come back to it, I'm totally lost.

So, it's not just you!

I finished the back lace-work (15') and I'm about 5' into the front.  I'm using the elann sonata and it's turning out pretty well.  Totally still loving it. 

The only problem I encountered was the similar slip-knit-purl instead of slip-knit-pass over.  Ack.  That sucked.  Also can't find a nude camisole in my particular shade of not-white, not-mocha.  At least not one under $30.  I decided if I flash some nip, I'll be ok with it;)

is there really a difference between the SKP and SSK for this pattern?  I find (on my sample with size 8 needles and merino wool...still waiting for my Rowan 4ply) that the SSK is a cleaner decrease...

anyone else notie this?

my lace work is looking a bit...nappy. but this is mostly due to the fact that i somehow keep messing up and i have to go back two rows all the time.

three rows forward, two rows back is the story of this sweater.

I just bought this pattern - it's sooo cute.  So I'll be knitting along at some point - probably not for a month or two.  Looking forward to seeing finished Oranginas!

It's my first post here, but I've lurked off and on for quite some time. Here's the most recent photo of my Orangina in progress. I'm not as far along as some of you are, but I am really enjoying it. I hope to finish it by the end of the month.
