If it boggles your mind you have all sorts of experts on KH to help you. Beyond that, if you decide something is a little past your skills what have you lost? A little time and a need to find another use for your yarn. I think you'll find you can do lots more when you jump right in and test the waters. Good luck.
This is GREAT advice, Jean! Lace knitting is so much much more interesting than plain old stockinette stitch!! KH is such a wonderful place to get help too! I would never be knitting these projects if it had not been for the help of everyone here!
