Hey guys, I would love to join this knitalong.  I got the pattern for Orangina from my SP5 after admiring it for a long time.  Then, being the awesome person she is, my SP also bought me the yarn!  So I'm making it in the recommended Rowan yarn, in the bright pink.  I decided to do front and back at once.  That's been a good thing except I sometimes accidentally do too many rows on one side at once.  Also, did anyone block their Orangina?  I'm thinking I'm going to take the pieces off the needle and do a light block before starting the ribbing.  It's way to curly and crumply right now not to.

All the Oranginas I've seen on this thread have looked great!  You all rock!  I'll post a picture of my progress soon.

teruterubouzu, yours is beautiful!  Looks great on you.

Here's a not too interesting progress shot of my orangina.  I'm doing it in the round from the armholes down, and it's working well.  The lace starts to hurt my hands after a while though, so I can't do too much at once. 

I'm using Elann's endless summer lara cotton in black.

That looks so great! I love that black.

Finished!  I ended up using 4 balls of the endless summer yarn from Elann.  I could have used a bit more length, but that's ok.  I blocked it a bit, but it didn't need much.  Luckily it's still tank top weather here in Houston so I can get a few uses out of it before it gets cold!

Nice work! It looks so great in black. I may have to make another one!

I'm just starting, and I have a question... I'm doing the M size which calls for casting on 121 sts.  What's interesting is that the lace pattern is a multiple of 9, + 4 sts = 13 sts.  13 doesn't neatly divide into 121, although it does into 130 (the no of sts to cast on for the L size).  Do I basically stop on the lace pattern no matter where I am when I have 1 or 2 sts left (for either Row 2 or Row 4) and just knit off?  I think I'm getting cut off after the k2tog or something before I do the next yo and thus having this inadvertent decrease in sts....  Huh

Shizzys, casting on 121 sts is correct. The lace repeat is 9 sts long, plus 4 - meaning that the final amount of stitches should be divisible by 9, plus 4 edge stitches.  So 9 times 13 is 117, plus 4 = 121.  Sorry, it's hard to write out the math to make it make sense, I hope it's understandable enough...

This is a great pattern, have fun with it!  I still need to take pictures of mine...

I've GOT to stop surfing here. I'm tempted - SO tempted - to make this next. But, since my current project is tempting (on sleeve #2!) I want to make a non-garment item next. Or atleast not a sweater. I don't know that I can handle two sweaters in a row. So I may come revisit this after clapotis.

So far I'm loving the black ones, but I need some color - that lilac-ish purply one a few pages back is calling out to me - and I normally don't wear that color!

Thanks, rosecomet! I seem to knit a lot of pink. I think I'll make my next one in black.
