wow - you've all inspired me to get cracking on this.  this is exactly what my fall wardrobe needs.  i just downloaded the pattern and i can't wait to get home and peruse the stash... 

(not that i have any business working on a project for me, given the number of WIPs i've got lying around for other people, but i can't help it!  Cheesy)

My yarn from Webs just shipped today. I wish it were here!

I'm using cascade ecological wool, has anyone used this? How bulky is it? I'm wondering if I will have to double strand or not. Gauge sample gauge sample here I come.

I really really really would love to have Interweave Knits Spring 2007 for those Eunny Chang entrelac socks. . . Does anyone want to swap for it?! I have yarn, I can sew, embroider, knit.

it's a heavy worsted yarn
i doubt you would have to double strand it

i also plan on using it for my juliet, but i haven't had a chance to knit a swatch yet
sorry i can't be of more help

I just finished my first repeat of the lace section. I think it looks pretty good, except the K1f,b,f,b on the setup row look a little odd and lumpy. I don't know if I did something wrong here.

How many stitches did you have on lace set row to have lace panel symmetrical?

I used the 173 (per pattern) and I think it looks fine. A poster on Ravelry also made the small and posted pics and it looks symmetrical without any modifications. She also had this to say (which is too late for me) but thought it might be helpful for others. If you have a Ravelry account, check hers out, it is really pretty.

"As for where to start the lace, I started mine directly after the bust as per the pattern.

I've found that the lace under the arm where the sleeves are joined is a weak spot. The lace panel is stretching out of shape a little - nothing too dramatic but I know it is there iykwim.

If I was to do it again I think I would join the sleeves and continue with just a row or two of garter for strength and then start the lace."

Thanks for posting that info candicane - I haven't gotten into Ravelry yet.

I'm making the longer cardi so I think I'll be waiting on the lace anyway but this is good to know!

I'm halfway into the yoke, using Cascade 128 Tweed, color 7630. I can't wait to start the lace! I'm thinking of making the sleeves a bit longer-has anyone else considered this?

Someone posted on Zephyr Style about making the sleeves longer but I don't think it has any replies yet....

im done knitting this (have yet to block, or put the buttons/closures on it) and for the people who had questions, i had the same.  i knitted the extra small for a friend and was might freaked out bout the set up lace section because it wasnt even.  but the instructions were fine, the 159 or something was the number without the 3sts in the beg and end  (6 altogether) and even tho it wasn't intuitively even, everything worked out just fine.  i hope this makes sense?  anyways pics below.  i used cotton fleece double stranded and did the cropped version.
