I just looked at the pattern. I don't think the stitches themselves would be so much of a challenge as keeping track of where you are on the row and which row you're on. If you have some extra yarn just lying around you might want to give it a go. You could always put it down and pick it up again later. I think you could do it, just know that it will be a challenge and taking a break from it is totally OK.

Thanks GG. I saved it over at ravelry. I know I'll try it sooner or later. Right now I'm busy frogging and trying those dang cables again and again. Lol.

Honestly, I think lace knitting is easier than cable work. With lace, you only need to know how to knit two together and slip slip knit (ssk)...and yarn overs too. Cables can be so fussy, although the effect is beautiful.

I know you can do it!!

Thanks! I'm easily intimidated but very tenacious. Lol. I'll watch the ssk video tomorrow when I wake up. I already know k2tog. I'll give it a shot! The cables and I went another round tonight. They won once again.
