I've done lace NOT with lace weight...I've done branching out, cats paw, some socks with lace...but nothing with lace weight. Maybe I'm having problems with that. I also don't think I do yo's correctly..I think often I end up with a few extra stitches after a yo. So. My thought right now is to take a lace knitting class....maybe at Madrona next January or at the BSG in June.
I learned how to crochet with wire this morning (!!!) from Annie Modesitt's new book, "Twist and Loop". It's a fun book.
