A quick question - how long is this taking people to knit? Not you super speedy knitters, but someone on the average end of the range? I'm torn between this and clapotis for the Knitting Olympics. I could probably dedicate a couple of hours each weekday night, and maybe 4 - 5 hours each weekend day to it. Is this doable in 16 days?  Oh - and I'd definately try to start knitting it in the round after the armholes..  The thought of seaming... on a lacy pattern no less.. no thanks! I'm joining the school of thought that converts everything into knitting in the round to avoid seaming.

You could definitely finish it in that time period, but you might get horribly bored. The side seams actually weren't bad. IIRC, the pattern's edges have perfect little loops for mattress stitch.

It took me 2 months.  But I'm really busy in nursing school.  So I only have a few precious moments to knit here and there.  There's a pic on my blog if you want to see it.  I knit it in the rowan cotton 4 ply and love love love this yarn.

The pattern is cool and definetly mindless after a while.  I would think you could make if for the knitting olympics.

By my comment about being bored I did not mean to put down the pattern in any way. I love the pattern and plan to knit another one this summer.

I think the cotton ease would look too chunky even if you adjusted the pattern for gauge, but that is just my opinion.

I used Elann's Endless Summer Lara--only took four balls for the smallest size.  Very affordable!  They only have a few colors available right now though.  Also, if you have Hobby Lobby around, I think they have a store brand sport-weight cotton that might work (haven't tried it though).

I don't have the funds for pricey yarn either.  I casted on using Lustersheen from Red Heart.  It's acrylic but it feels exactly like cotton and it has a nice sheen.  One skein has 335 yards, it's a great deal.

I'm going to use Palette from knit picks. I'm going to cast on as soon as I finish some of my WIPs.
