In just a week, I went from this:
YARN: Wollmeise Pure (100% superwash merino, 575 yds/150g skein), colorway WD Sabrina. I used about 115g.
PATTERN: Golden Orchids by Aino Haikala.
NEEDLES: US 4/3.5mm (down from the US 6/4.0mm suggested by the pattern)
BEADS: Random ones given me by my friend Brittany. Glass with foil lining, no idea about the size.
NOTES: An easy and straightforward knit. I wouldn't recommend it for the absolute lace beginner, but otherwise have at it. This is going to live with my friend Wendy as thanks for making my wedding dress!
