wow. i really like that yarn (a lot), but i don't know if it would be right for a beginner lace project. maybe something more like a necklace. the thing is, you could use it for your first project and actually fall in love with lace. but what if it gives you a hard time and completely turns you off from attempting lace in the future with a "normal" yarn? i would reccomend trying something like knitpicks' shadow
for your first go at lace. too many firsts all at once might not be such a good idea. i just got some shadow and have decided to knit the tam/scarf set from IK's holiday gifts
. i've never done lace before, so i'm really excited to get started. i'll probably do the scarf first because the lacey bits are only at the end. in fact, i know
i'll do the scarf first to prepare me for the tam.
let us know what you decide. we're all in this big knitting world together!
