Yours both look great! I still haven't started the lace section, but I am ready to go. I think I got a bit carried away and ended up with 5 inches of garter under the arms, but I think it will work. It is very difficult to get a good picture of mine...it keeps looking like a black blob. This is the best I was able to do.

It looks great April! Looks like we are all starting the lace around the same time. I just got done the garter and am getting ready to do the set up row.

Looks great! I haven't had much knitting time today so I'm not quite at the lace yet, but soon I hope! I want to finish it so I can get on with my Christmas knitting.

I just started on the lace part last night. I got one repeat done. It's looking really nice.

Well, I am hating the lace section. I think it is the acrylic I am using. I should have had more patience and waited to order something with a bit more "give". I am also finding that it seems to be too big in the back and I am getting a gap.

I am thinking about putting this on hold until I get some different yarn and just starting over. Lambs Pride Bulky maybe?

Anyone still working on this? I have about 2 more repeats of the lace before I'll be done with that. Then I'll pick up the sleeve stitches...I haven't decided how long I might go though.

How is everyone else doing?

I'm doing a knock off of it; I just put in my own lace pattern. It's acrylic and has plenty of `give' whatever you mean by that. I have probably about 2/3 the length I need for the body, then go to work on the sleeves.

This pattern knit up with smaller needles and with a finer yarn would make the perfect bed jacket. I have been looking for a nice bed jacket type pattern. Any suggestions on gauge, needle size and yarn suzeeq (keeping in mind I am allergic to wool)? Thanks for the help.
