Have you made any kind of swatch?
When I get any new yarn, I "sketch" with it. I try it on several sizes of needles, maybe double it to knit, try different stitches, etc. Once you find a needle/yarn combination you like, then go for a pattern. Try a repeat from any simple lace pattern you can find on line, just on a swatch. See how you do.
