Could you give me some information regarding your needles. I just started lace knitting and realize what needles I have, are NOT going to work. I tried my Denise and the yarn is getting stuck. I switched to a Boye but only because that was all I had...Have you ever tried the Addi lace? Do you know anything about the addi lace interchangeable?

Beautiful work!!!!

I've just started this shawl and am considering doing the 19 repeats but not sure I have enough yarn. How much yarn did yours take? I'm working mine on size 6 needles and using a sock weight yarn. I've completed 9 of the budding lace repeats and it seems very small (even accounting for some heavy duty blocking). It also seems to have used just a small amount of yarn. Any suggestions you have would certainly be appreciated. BTW I know what you mean about lifelines.
Thanks so much.:knitting:

That's stunning - I don't do a lot of lace knitting and am just about to start the Summer in Kansas shawl. Hope it turns out as well as this.

Hi _

I was using Bryspun plastic needles because I needed something a bit "grabby" with the Alpaca Silk. I started with KP Oprions, but they were too slick and fell out of the stitches.
I never have used Addi lace needles.
