I'm back again! Cheesy
I found a cool stitch from VK summer/spring '05, and just cast on more stitches for a shawl. Here's what I have so far:

I am using Jaggerspun Zephyr in color Sage double-stranded on size 7 needles. I think it's going well so far, and I really like it!

I think I'm going to join! Shocked I haven't really knit much lace yet, and what I have knit I almost messed up, so I'm a little nervous about starting. I am making Kiri, but will make one long strip instead of a triangle because my mom requested it that way. I am using Jaggerspun Zephyr in Sage that I ordered from Sarah's Yarns (my name is Sarah too! Wink). I ordered the cone (all 5,040 yards of it). The yarn is supposed to arrive tomorrow.
