That's a lovely pattern you've chosen, Anthony.

I think you can just consider KH as your mentor. This site is better than having just one mentor because if that person couldn't answer a question, then you'd have to go elsewhere. With the whole of KH by your side, you can get tons of help, sometimes a variety of helpful answers, AND quick answers to your queries!!

*I would recommend starting the pattern and working up to the point where you're confused. Then ask questions of the knowledgeable people here until you're unconfused. Then repeat from * to end!

What a beautiful sweater! Thank you for sharing it, I may have to give it a go for my daughter...

From what I've seen you try so far, I don't think you'll have any problem with the sweater, as the b/o for shaping are in st st, not in the lace pattern.

I agree with Antares, jump in, and ask questions as you go!

Thank you for the link to the pattern, I may knit that for my daughter-in-law for next Christmas. She appreciates what I make for her, my daughter didn't.

Please let me know how it turns out, and post pictures if you come to some slightly challenging parts (if you come to any), that way, maybe I can complete it without even having to bother you all! I am SURE you will be way ahead of me on completion.

Thanks all!

Now, Anthony! You're not bothering us, so ask as many questions as you please. After all, questions/answers make up the majority of this forum, and if folks like you (and me) didn't ask questions, it would be a boring site indeed!

How pretty! I bet she'll love it. Looking at the pattern, the neck and armholes look pretty standard for shaping, I don't think you'll have any major problems. You shouldn't have any problem at all with getting any help you need here. Go for it!
