This was a *very* nice pattern to knit. It took concentration, lifelines, tinking and some cussing. I also had to figure out really how loose to knit the nupps - but I loved knitting it and how it turned out.
The yarn is Classic Elite - Silky Alpaca Lace. The needles I used were Bryspun circs #4 and cast of with #6. Since the needles are white (well, sort of creamy color) it was easy enough to see the yarn. I must confess that I do have a great Verilux lamp that I sit under. Otherwise it might, no, it would be much more difficult to see.
Mods - I knit 19 repeats of the budding lace using LittleBerryKnits numbers and method. It was so easy with her great directions.

Now the conundrum is what to knit next?!
