WooHoo

My yarn came today, Kniticks Shadow in Sunset...I am going to cast on and start in a moment as soon as I free up a needle, LOL, I actually have one ordered but it isn't due in til Friday so....
Reminds me I best order a few more needles...LOL...it ISN'T yarn!!
Will post a pic later if I am at all successful with this...odd to be a 40+year knitter, paid professional knitter, sample knitter and feel intimidated..I am very encouraged by everyone's pics and words of wisdom here. Here I go....

Cheryl, you can do it! I have found that lace keeps getting easier, and that all those years of experience (I have been knitting since age 5) just got me ready for the bigger challenge that laceweight and elaborate designs presents.

Thanks for the encouraging words, I was LOL at myself for some time , I must have taken those initial 3 sts out 5 times..I am happy to say I am now up to row 20 chart 1, planning on finishing first chart tonight. This is not good for all the other WIPs..and I think I am going to love lace. It is a wonder that someone can actually design it though!

Cheryl, hang in there, you can do it! I've never done a provisional cast on before either and had to re-do those three stitches a few times before I got it to work out too. LOL I think this is going to be a challenging pattern for me, but I love doing lace so will perservere!
