I got the exact colors in the pattern but you are right they are NOT like the pic they are more of light pink and mauvy colors.  I am okay with that because I do like pink.

I actually like this pattern so much I am thinking of knitting it again with a fun turqouise blue that I got from Sweet Georgia.  I got enough yarn to make my "beer sweater" (beer sweater is the perfect open guage sweater that you throw over a camisole and sit on the patio with a beer in the late summer evenings) which I altered the top down vneck from glampyre for....but anyways I know I will have enough left over to do the edge on this so thought about mixing it up with a variagated darker blue green for fun. 

Right now I am a few rows from the end of the ribbed part - it is currently just my car knitting because of the simplicity so it has been somewhat slow moving.  The lace is my need something to challenge me after baby goes to bed knitting so it gets worked on here and there as well.  If baby or DH is awake NOOO lace for me they are both too demanding Wink

I actually casted on with the long tail cast on and it is so tight down there I cannot even think of picking up stitches.  I am going to rip out/cut maybe up a few rows and knit down then do the YO like it calls for at the BO edge.  I am hoping that because both ends have the YO that it will look even more symetrical...at least that is what I keep telling myself to keep my sanity!

I cannot wait to see yours!

The lace cast on is similar to a knitted on cast on except instead of going thru the stitch you go between stitches.  It gives a loose edge but it is stili more stable then a provisional cast on.

Oh yikes!  I just realized I put this backward.  The lace cast on goes thru the stitches the regular knitted on cast on (which is MUCH firmer) goes between the stitches!

Also, I don't know if this is something all lace knitters do but when you k1p1 into the double YO/yfwd I highly suggest the norweigan purl it is so much easier!  The directions/videos are on knitting help.

Koshare,

Question for you.  Do you know why we have to end the sleeves at 20 stitches?  How do we graft between 23 and 20 stitches...I'm confused Sad  Huh

Hmmmm.... wellthat IS interesting...

I'm not that far along (barely started to tell the truth) but in reading the pattern it sure does seem odd.  Are you at that point yet?  Does it look like it will work? Maybe the 23 stitches at the beginning pull in more than the 20 at the end?  Since you actually cast on and cast off (or so the pattern says) it's not  true graft anyway.....

I Just finished the center.  I had to cut off two rows and now I am knitting the one row then increasing to replicate the caston where I did not leave the loops like how you do at the end when you put it on the stitch holder.  I have been knitting the sleeve when I have time alone in parrallel and I am one repeat from the end of the first sleeve...so yeah I will be there tonight.  I am almost thinking of just doing the 23 bind off pattern.  Gonna look at it a bit more, but so far I'm confused...

This pattern is gorgeous, but also is confusing.
