Okay, after many hours of work, I've gotten seven repeats done!  Problem: I've made several mistakes the cause of which I can't figure out.  I think the worst thing about lace, to me, is that when you undo something, it isn't clear how to undo it.  I never know whether something used to be a yfwd or what.  Probably I could take more time and figure this out, but I haven't been.  Also, it's darn near impossible to pick up dropped stitches when you're using a size 7 needle with lace-weight yarn!! 

So here's a picture.  Doesn't look nearly as nice and even as most of yours.  It's Paris Rose from HPY, and I like the color variation though I hope it doesn't end up distracting from the pattern.  It's bad lighting, by the way - what looks like an unsightly grey is actually a pretty dark blue...

What I'm baffled by is why some of the times when I bind off, there's this little lump instead of the nice curve that is usually there.  When it happened the first time (towards the beginning) I wrote it off as me not knowing what I was doing yet and decided I'd just sort of sew it up underneath when I was done.  But since it's just happened again, I'm really clueless, and I'm wary now, because I don't want this to be happening all over the whole frill...has this happened to anyone else?  Any ideas?  I thought maybe I was binding off too tightly and tried undoing it (eek) but that only helped a little bit.
