Working exactly as pattern except that I’m using a larger needle than the pattern (pattern called for US 4) so that the lacy holes will be larger. I have plenty of this yarn so I shouldn’t have to worry about running out.

6/30/2014: Finished! Now I need to find time to block this. Final weight is 94 grams = 827.2 yards. (Pattern called for 700 yards)

7/25/2014: I didn’t block this super aggressively, but since I used a larger needle size, I did not block according to pattern dimensions, which are 19” x 60”. I blocked enough to open up the lace pattern and space the edging out so the points didn’t look bunched up anywhere.
