It's really not that bad once you get used to it. I only do about 1 repeat a day or so and the wrong side is easy, just purl every stitch except the double yarn overs which is knit 1 then purl 1. You kind of get into a rhythm of knitting with such tiny needles and thread.

I can't imagine doing this all day everyday in one of the medieval/renaissance guilds though!

OOO LA LA! That is going to be so pretty- much better than the el cheapo scratchy ones you can buy (that I always picture hanging on the rearview of an Iroc for some reason.)
