I am so excited, because this is my first knit-a-long, and my first attempt at lace. I messed up quite a bit in the begining, but I think I've got it now. I am using Rowan Calmer in coffee bean, and size 10 needles. Its probably not the best yarn to use for lace, but it is so wonderful to knit with... super soft. There are a couple of mistakes in the beginning, but thanks to my lifeline, I have been able to avoid any more!
