It was a pleasant evening when I got home last night, so I tackled the lace again. I am now 2.5 repeats through a 16 repeat pattern, and so far no dropped stitches or stitches not adding up at the end of a row. And I can see the pattern! Yay! Might replace the cotton stitchmarkers for embroidery silk, but that's just a niggle.
Tried knitting the sweetpea cashmere into a swatch last night - it broke twice. Needs more lube and poss. less tension. Might give the supplier a ring for suggestions - it's too expensive to waste it! The bit I did manage is pretty, though.
