Uh-oh . . .

I've discovered I don't know lace well enough to fudge it.

I've dropped a stitch, and I have no idea where it's gone!

Here was my first attempt at lace. (Your first little ball of alpaca was what I had left from this project, BTW.) My experience was that I HAD to count my stitches on every row and very carefully check my work. Slowed up the knitting (it was only an 8 row repeat, with all the wrong side rows just purls in the lace sections), but once I got into the habit, I only occasionally had to tink back a row or a row and a half. I had to rip back (far back) several times until I started doing that, which slowed things down a lot more. I never did successfully manage to pick up a dropped stitch in the lace more than one row down. Anyway, remember: the lifeline is your friend!

WOW! That's stunning!!!

I think I dropped the stitch while tinking. Doh. We'll see what happens. I'm not madly in love with my gauge anyway - but I'm not sure how much it'll change once blocked.

That's nothing... Wait till you see the picture of the lace scarf I got from my SP in the mail this morning (I won't be able to post it until I get home to my camera tonight) -- I am totally humbled and blown away! All lace in grey and rose fingering weight, feels like merino. GORGEOUS!
