Just wanted to post and let you all know that I haven't abandoned this KAL. I cast on Sun. expecting to be done the next day, BUT
... I got an eye infection in BOTH
!!! Seriously, I figured it best not to try and knit lace for my first time this way! I can see well enough to get through the day, and thank goodness for spell check, but knitting, not so much!
On the positive side, I was able to get through the first 20 rows and then 2 sets of pattern repeat before this happened. When I do finally get back to it, I don't think it should take too long to complete. The pattern I chose seems very easy and was a good choice to begin lace with.
Just as an aside...I have no idea how to block lace! Guess I should figure that out, huh?
