hi, everyone!

i'm so glad that there's a knitalong for this. i've been lusting after it ever since seeing it on a few blogs, and i just couldn't resist when a yarn store by me had the ksh for 40%. i ended up buying it in majestic, which is nowhere near as washed out as it looks in this picture.

i just ordered rowan 37 today, and will be swatching for it once i get the magazine. after that, i'm planning on ordering some of those super-pointy knitting needles from knitpicks to use, since they look like they'll come in handy. if i can find some cool beads (how many / what size does the pattern call for? i'm only knitting the vest version.), i'll nab those, too.

i'm hoping to finish this up in time for a wedding (in mid-october), but we'll see about that, since i'm also working on a few other projects for myself and some xmas knitting.

eta: ok, so...before purchasing these (reasonably-priced) knitting needles, i was wondering if anyone could tell me how useful super-pointy needles usually are for knitting lace. thanks!
