Hooray! I'm done with the lace! I'm so happy! For some reason I couldn't seem to get the lace on 7 stitches, I was doing mine with 9, with the YOs and K2tog and sl1-k1-psso. Can anyone explain to me how it was done only with 7. I just can't figure it out! I'm very happy with how it came out. Esp. Since this was my first try at lace! I hope to finish the purl rows tonight or tomorrow and then try it on before switching back to the other yarn. If I knit this again, I think I'd just go with one color and not at the fancy in the lace. The sequins are kind of scratchy. I know that I will be wearing a cami under this. (I'm thinking a lt gray would be pretty.) but still. If I have enough of the reg. silk I think I will just use that for around the neck.

I can't help you with the lace query (I've not even looked at the pattern, let alone set a date to start this!) but just wanted to say that I love how it's coming along, it looks stunning!!

Your SKB is simply beautiful! I haven't started mine yet, but seeing beautiful SKB WIPs like yours is perfect inspiration.
