after trying for two times to order the recommended rowan, i gave in and found a substitute.
Webs offers a snappy sport weight cotton and for a whole pound its only 16 bucks.
ill be casting on as soon as the yarn arrives. im so excited.

katatonic what yarn is the webs sportweight?  sounds very promising.

i swatched last night with a bright kelly green schachenmayr catania cotton i got fron elann a year ago with something else in mind. (but i cant even remember what anymore!) the color is a bit much.  (i am the only person left in the world without a digital camera, but this is it: http://www.diamondyarn.com/image.php?yarnID=821&imgID=s  the color i have seems to not even be made anymore. it looks like # 170 but about 3 shades darker and more intense.  i think it may not work.

my gauge is 26 sts = 4" over the lace (did anyone else find this hard to measure? i kept getting different numbers, this one most often) but I think the xs will be too small and the s too big, so i think if i work the small with this gauge it should work well and produce a size right in the middle.  anyone else out there with a 36B that can recommend a size?  I am a size small top (gap, old navy) med at places like urban outfitters.  and size 6 pant.... i am kind of inbetween, i think. 

this thread is very inspiring!!!

here my progress so far...I'm using the Rowan 4ply and got perfect gauge with 3s.  I'm making the XS even though I'm usually a medium...so far, so good!

Yay, Orangina!  Everyone's look beautiful!  I am using Stork in what I like to call Carnation Pink.  I choose to make a small because I really like the cap sleeve look that Stefanie's has on her site, so I figured making it a little big would accomplish that.  I am also planning on going to a size one needle for the ribbing (i'm using three's for the main part) as I want it to be fitted around the bottom.  Have fun!  Here's my progress so far:

I finally finished! I'm generally really happy with the fit, I did the size small and it's just right. the yarn is dmc cotton senso, 100% cotton.

But UGH -- do you see that horrible stripe around my waist? I bought the pattern and yarn in a kit, so I didn't bother to check the labels -- I assume a kit will all be the same dyelot. It was too late when I noticed that stripe was forming, and I thought maybe it wouldn't really show in the finished object. But it really does....and I don't think there is anything I can do about it. Dammit.

Lesson learned....check dyelots...


I ordered the kit from Discount Yarn Sale.com, too.  How do you like the feel of the yarn?  I thought I was getting Rowan, not DMC.  Oh well, live and learn.

Looks fabulous.  I may go ahead and buy some DMC Senseo to make my solid Orangina.

I have frogged this FIVE times. If I screw up this time beyond repair...it just wasn't meant to be. I think I'm just too spacey for lacey.
