Lovely, and what a great shade of green! I still haven't decided on what color/yarn to do my Clarus in yet....decisions decisions. Thanks for the tip about stitch markers. I had a bit of issue w/Skywalker until I started using lifelines every few rows and stitch markers every pattern repeat. That way it helped me know exactly when I went astray. Alto tedious at first, I can't recommend using stitch markers & lifelines enough!! PS: Love your Cardi. Mine just came out of surgery a week ago for a bad aura hematoma on her beautiful large ear. Now the ear won't stand up :( Hope once it heals it'll stand to attention again.

thank you I really enjoyed the color while working on this type of pattern...I would recommend something tonal or single color.

Lovely color. What kind of wire did you use for the edged blocking? Is it special for crafting or just hardware stuff?? I have never seen that done before. Interesting tip. And, two paws up for your "wuppy" who is feeling better!!

knit picks set that has correct gauage of wire for blocking...worth investment as makes blocking easier and more fun

Great job. Nice to see KP Stroll used for lace. I have been looking at it for a shawl but hadn't taken the plunge. Definitely makes Stroll an option. Did you have any problems blocking because of the nylon content?

No trouble blocking and it wasn't too wet when I blocked it. Also having the pads on the table in front of a big window with the air coming over it meant it was dry in less than 24 hours.
