Those are very pretty and I thank you for the link, but my personal aesthetics are opposed to using variegated yarn for a lace pattern.
I'm going to see if the LYS sells this yarn, and pick up another ball or two. I wound up knitting the pattern too small and still ran out of yarn. I do normally knit socks small, because I like my socks to fit snuggly, but this pattern has a strip that stretches less/differently, so I need to make them a little bigger than usual.
...who needs food this week? I need yarn.
