Thanks! I used Amy's tip about putting the life line yarn into the little tightening hole on my interchangeable needles. The life line goes in as I knit
This method works well for me because I use two life lines. That way if I mess up on the row as I'm knitting the life line in, I still have a point I can frog back to.
I KNEW I would love lace knitting! It was really hard for me to get through that first 12 row lace pattern repeat; it took three and a half tries or so. Once I worked through it, though, I understand it a lot better and it's going fairly quickly now
