It's 'Flirty' (shade 127). I got it on sale because it's a discontinued shade (only recently, so you should still be able to find it around). Mine is from getknitted.com

This pattern haunts me......so many projects so little time.  And seeing an adorbale hot pink Orangina doesn't help.  Now I am dying to make it again!

chihiro -- your fit is PERFECT! what size did you make? I LOVE the pink...

i have finished 8" of the front and about 2 1/2" of the back.  i am using 3/2 pearl cotton in a deep plum purple color.  i am going to attach the two sides after the armholes and knit in the round (and maybe do some shaping on the sides -- i worry about the size...i keep getting the impression this pattern runs huge! but i love the lace and hope to finish next week.  the cotton isn't as nice to work with as a good merino, but it shines like silk!
(we got a digital camera last week -- this is my first time uploading photos, i think they are tiny.....

progress so far:

erincatherine, yours looks so pretty in purple! to answer your question i made the small size (112 stitches i believe) and used 3's for the lace and 1's for the ribbing.  i had no problem with it being too big like some others did, but i tend to knit tight so that may be why.  can't wait to see your fo!  -kelly

Wow, I love how everyone's is turning out!  I think you all have me convinced to buy this pattern!  I really want to make this.  I don't have much experience with lace.  How difficult is this?  By the sound of things I've read on this thread, there is no decreasing...just two pieces sewn together?  Also, would anyone mind telling me what weight yarn is used\suggested?  I would like to use this as a stash buster project.  Thanks  Smiley
