I'm glad this was my first attempt at lace knitting, it's making working on Lucky from SNBN much easier.

Hey!  I was wondering how that pattern was... I got the yarn for it as an early birthday present, and now am feeling worried about it.  It will be my second lace pattern after branching out as well...

How are you finding it?

I knit the longer strap and I'm almost done the back, I've told myself it's OK to knit other things while I'm working on this because I know it'll take forever. The stitch pattern is fun and pretty easy to memorize. It is the first pattern I've done that asks you to do x,y,z every 4th row after doing a certain thing, and then every 9th row do this other thing, so it can be really confusing (for me anyway). I wrote down the row numbers in the pattern as they correspond to the stitch pattern so that I won't get confused. I know that doesn't make sense, but for example:

There's 12 rows in the lace pattern. At a certain point I have to start decreasing, every 4th row 9 times. But the row I started on at that point is 10. So I wrote down:

2, 6, 10, 2, 6, 10, 2, 6,10

and I've been crossing them off as I go. Sorry if that doesn't make sense. It's the most complicated sweater I've done yet, but that's not really saying too much, and it's coming out really beautifully because the needles are so small. Sorry to hijack the thread!

No it's not the wrong thread, she asked me a question in this thread about a project, so I responded in this thread. Next time I'll write a PM instead, but I did respond where I was supposed to.

I'm in. Branching Out is my first lace project and I am using Blue Sky Alpaca sport weight in new pink. I knit really tight and have to go up a needle size all of the time. Since this yarn is thicker than the  Knit One Crochet Two, Douceur et Soie I decided to go up to a US 10. So far it looks pretty good. Once it's blocked it is going to be nicely lacy (I hope) but you can still see the pattern. Once this one is done it's going to my grandmother I do believe.  Smiley

I love this scarf. The second I get my minisweater finished (and I'm juggling it with exams at the moment so it's taking AGES) I'm going to be in on this knitalong...I'm knitting everyone Christmas presents this year (and trying to get as many of them as possible finished before the summer's over) and I think I'll be making this for my singing teacher Smiley
