The Lace Adventure Begins

Okay, the results are in. The Mauve yarn got the most votes here and at the Knitting Forum. Lucky for me it's a fingering weight yarn and should not be too hard to work the first few rounds. It seems I was mistaken about the fiber. No alpaca. It's 100% wool. It's still a great color.

I tried the Emily Ocker circular cast last night. Seen here ( I got the hang of it after the second try. It turned out great. What a nice neat circle. Just pull the tail to tighten the cast-on stitches together.

I put the stitches onto two size 7 circular needles since I'm not a fan of double pointed needles (DPN). DPNs tend to flop around terribly with a few stitches on the needles. And mine always tend to fall or fly away.

There's something new on the sidebar. I'm getting familiar with blog design. What do you think of the WIP area I added? I played around with the HTML code which can be a bit scary. I do like how it came out.
