hmmm, I think I've only knit 6 or so inches on one side. I've put it down for a week or so. I made a mistake and didn't want to find it. Guess I should get back to it.


heh heh.

I'm still here, too... I had to put it down to work on something else, too.  I'm about 10in into side two.

I'm veeeery far behind, but have just ordered the yarn for this. For once in my life I'm actually using the recommended Rowan 4-ply cotton, so fingers crossed this should be fairly straightforward, if time consuming.

Any tips on sizing from those who're further through? Does it come up big or small? I'm between two sizes and trying to decide which one to settle on!

I started my gauge swatch last night.  So far, my gauge is spot on (but I've only knit 2 inches of length.)  I can already see that this is going to be very pretty.  I'm using DMC crochet thread in Wedgewood.

so I recent;y made a horrible discovery.  For the entire two years that I've been knitting, I have doing yarn overs incorrectly.  Not a big deal, I was knitting the stitch after my yo with the yarn in front. 

Now I am about 3/4 done with one side of my Orangina and I haven't worked on it about two weeks.  I can't decide whether I should frog and start over!


ARGGGHHH!

I finished my swatch last night.  Stitch gauge was perfect, but row gauge was off.  I figure that since this is knit for length, I should be fine.  However, my thumbs are really sore!  I think it is the combination of having to use metal needles (I prefer my plastic Denises), and all the purling.  I think I need to get one of those squishy hand strengtheners.

After a quick trip to Liberty upon realising I didn't have the right sized needles, I've finally cast on. Two hours on the train yesterday and only I managed about three repeats of the lace pattern! I keep making stupid mistakes and having to unknit to find my silly mistakes. I hope this is just because I'm at the beginning and haven't yet memorised the stitches.

I think I just need to keep reminding myself that it'll all be worth it in the end!

I think I'm going to rip out what I have, pick out another cute lace pattern, and start again on larger needles.  The size 2s I was using to get gauge were driving me mad! Smiley

Gemma - I also only knit on the train... in the beginning, I could only do about one pattern repeat per ride - now I'm almost done with the lace part, I can do about three repeats, and I feel like I could do the pattern in my sleep!  After so much repetition, it gets much easier!
