I am a bit late to the blogging party, but I did start my Stonecrop on the first. I did the lower border and then set it aside to finish up my Fir Cone Wrap (Churchmouse pattern, linked here) of which I have about 30 yards left, then to attach the upper border and block. The Fir Cone Wrap I have done in Jamieson's Ultra. I had never worked with Ultra before; lovely stuff it is!
I keep looking at my Stonecrop and doubting my judgement on the needle size. I went down a size as I usually do because I like my lace to be a little tighter, but then I keep second-guessing myself. I've been picking up the border I've already done and looking at it, stretching it and then deciding I am quite happy with it as it is. I have gotten very little knitting done in the past week, but my guys are both gone this weekend to an archery tournament so I will have plenty of time to myself and will be able to make some headway. I'll post again after a repeat or two.
Wishing you all a warm cup of cocoa and relaxing knitting!
