Thanks again. That's what I will do. I think that is what people are finding - that it poofs or flairs a bit on the lace.

Juliet-inspired girl's cardigan
Here's a pic of the cardigan I made for my daughter. It turned out too big, even with swatching, so it'll be going to my 5-y-o niece instead. In the meantime, I've started a new Juliet for my daughter after re-calculating my stitch counts. For more detail, please see my blog.

I love this pattern - I started it a few weeks ago - I am up to the part you start the lace design. I had some Knit Picks yarn in my stash that I doubled. I am making this for someone else so it will be fine for that person. But when I make it for me I have already bought some Debbie Bliss Chunky Cashermino - I think I will like it not so bulky as it is with the 2 strands of the worsted weight yarn. I am making the longer version.

The pattern is great - you knit it all in one piece - no sewing when you are done!!!

Ok, I made it to the lace! Now for my probably silly questions...

The patterns says to set up (RS)...is there a RS at this point?? It's all garter so I don't see which is which, or are they just getting us going on RS and WS?

and

Should I decrease my needle size now or when I actually start the lace?

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

I think it would mean that the next row will be the RS, so mark it so you'll know. Keep with the same needle until you start the lace. A lace pattern expands more than garter or St st, so using one size smaller will keep it from being too expansive.

Well, my Juliet is coming along nicely. I just put the sleeves onto scrap yarn (I'm going to make them a bit longer than cap length) and have knit a few rows. I'm making the longer version and I'm loving the yarn I'm using. Sooooo soft!!!

I put my sleeves on scrap yarn too. Although I just tried it on and I don't think I will have to add too much length to them. I think an inch or so should be fine.

I have about an inch to go before I start the lace. Yay!!! Here are a couple pics I took the other day. Not the best because I took them with my phone but you get the idea. I'd love to see progress pics from you guys too!
