Thanks...sorry, didn't mean to hijack the thread...

One thing I've found when you're doing these...the more stockinette, the more yarn/thread you'll use. I generally try to have no less than 1200-1400 yards when I start a circular knit. Sure hope you'll enjoy the knit lace beauties as much as I do!

Great advice from the site that Labeelady mentions. It refers to Emily Ocker's cast on. I tried it for the first time last week and I really recommend it, allows you to cinch up the hole in the center created when you first start a circular knit.
