That's great and welcome to our little KAL. I'll be ready next week to actually start, but by all means please start without me. And I am sure we'll be there knitting all together at somepoint.

I know Karina,
It's actually a DK weight wool, and I was using US size 8 needles. I actually didn't have any solid yarn to experiment with, so I used some of the yarn from the scarf that I am knitting. LOL So, I wouldn't have enough anyway.
I am looking at this as a swatch and to see if I could actually do it. So, seriously, if I can do this. "ANYONE" can do this!

Sounds great KM and welcome. I am so glad that we are having more people joining our KAL. I should have my yarn by next week as well and looking forward to start as well.
And yes, slow and steady does, mostly. :D

Mary, that looks great! And you're photographing white, one of the hardest things to photograph and get detail. Can't wait to start mine soon!

I highly recommend to anyone joining in on the KAL to put in lifelines... It is a fairly intricate pattern and I had to tink back, once on the 35th round. I have reached and placed a lifeline on round #46, which is a knit round just before a stitch pattern round. Once you reach this point, after the 47th round, there will be knit rounds for 4 rounds and then another stitch pattern row. Just a suggestion!

ok, this may be REALLY obvious... but to a person who likes to think things through before they do it... how do you put a lifeline in?!!!

:S

There is a video here on KH:

Scroll down to the "Fixing Mistakes" heading and there is a video for "Using a Lifeline".

Lol! Thanks Lisa... that answers so many questions, and i'm kicking myself even harder after this weekend's misadventures whilst watching a film and attempting to finish off a couple of rows of lacework...

No more!!! I think lifelines are going to be a huge part of my knitting from now on!!!!

Thanks again!

Your Welcome! I've been watching this thread and trying to figure out if I want to add one more project to my list. I love the pattern though. I just need to finish up a few things first.
