Another newbie

Howdy! I'm another newbie, both to the KAL and to lace knitting. This is my first lace project, and I am loving it. I'm knitting mine in green Kidsilk Haze (I don't remember the exact name of the shade), and I've finished 16 repeats.

It took me a few tries to get past the first repeat, but the third time was the charm. It's like it just "clicked" for me. I'm not sure how many repeats I plan to do; I have 2 balls of the KSH and will probably use part of the second one. I want it to be pretty long.

This is what it looked like right after I put it back on the needles after my 2-year-old decided it would be great sport to give Mama a heart attack by pulling the needle out of her knitting:

I absolutely love the way it looks so far, and I love how it feels against my face. (I'm having trouble stopping myself from fondling this yarn as I knit!) The KSH is not as scary to work with as I thought it would be.

Anyway, I'm thrilled to join y'all!

it is looking great! Keep it up! I, in a fit of brilliance, pulled my needle right out while knitting mine, oh the sinking feeling that was. good recovery :)

That is lovely - the colour is very delicate, which really suits the cobweb quality of the yarn. Good luck with the rest of it!

You might be surprised at how long it gets with the ksh. I did 36 repeats and still had a nice small ball leftover. It looks lovely!

Same with me, I did 36 repeats with the KSH too, and it was really long. Good luck, it looks lovely, I love the shade!
