I'm doing it! I am knitting lace - and quite successfully, to my surprise! I decided to make the Cranbourne Scarf from Wendy Knits Lace because it's rated for an "adventurous beginner" and that describes my lace knitting skills pretty well : ) I am following the chart with no problem and have gotten into a nice groove...
Here is a photo of the finished scarf from the book... it's so pretty!
I'm off to the post office and then to get a haircut (I love haircuts!) and some lunch.
