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 (http://bagateller.tripod.com/tips/circular.html). 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.
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.
