I think there may already be a thread for this, somewhere in the depths of archives past, but I was wondering if anyone had any interest in doing a knitalong for Eunny's gorgeous Print O' the Wave stole?

Pictures here:

And free pattern here:

I cast on for it last night, which lead me to not study for my Russian midterm (curse you and your beautiful patterns, Eunny!) and it's great, but I can tell that it's going to be a little bit of work, especially since I picked the teeniest, hardest-to-see-stitch-detailing-in, most fragile yarn ever. But I'm loving it so far. And the pattern's a lot easier than I thought it would be... the hardest part is going to be dealing with the fiddliness of this darn yarn.

I'm planning on casting on for this when I am done with Icarus, which should be in a few weeks.

I already have KnitPicks Shimmer in Turquoise Splendor in the stash that I think will look great in this pattern.

I am planning on knitting it in one piece and avoiding the grafting.

I've been working on this for a few weeks - while making Clapotis' for my Christmas presents (1 and a half to go!!), and working and going to school.  It won't get done too quickly, but I guess I'm in for this!

I'm using some Wilton's dyed yarn from Knitpicks - whatever the pfd sock weight yarn was called last year. 

I'll post pix of it in progress when I get home!

BTW - I'll probably be working on it tonight instead of studying for my 20th century music test!!

ARGH I just frogged this for the second time, not because of any difficulty with the pattern, but just out of plain stupidity on my part and inability to count! So frustrating!!!!

Casting on for try three... with safety lines this time...

How would you rate the difficulty of this?  I've never done lace (yet), but I have done aran patterns and a clapotis....

Honestly, the pattern isn't very complicated at all. I'm just having problems because I a.) can't count, and b.) was knitting during a bumpy car ride that caused me to drop multiple stitches and get all tangled up in myself. If you've knit aran patterns and a clapotis you'll be more than fine. And it's so pretty!!!

My plans to knit this have been put on hold for a bit.  I have been asked to knit a shawl for a friend who is getting married in March, and I am going to get started on that as soon as I am done with Icarus.

I'm on pattern repeat 4... which is more exciting than it sounds because it's amidst exams, parental visits and big school events... and comes after my 3rd start... I really can't count. BUt it's so pretty right now!

I have about 12 repeats done on this but it's seriously on the back burner now due to gift knitting, Christmas concerts , Musicals at school ,and exams!

Hi there!  I started to knit Eunny's Print O'... this summer, but as I'd almost finished the main part I was stupid enough to forget it! Fortunately, it was still in my knitting-basket when I picked it up last week. I just want to tell you that the result will be gorgeus if you only hang in there! I'm not a very experienced (lace-) knitter, but I'm so in love with this one and I think you will be with yours too. So keep up the good work, even if you have exams and Chistmas preparations to do right now!
