New Jerseyan signs on!

Jacqueline and Stephanie, thanks for starting this knit-along! I'm a little late to the party, but not in terms of my love for this book. This will be my first real lace project, and fortunately my mom, for whom I am knitting, has picked an easy shawl for me. I've started "Scarf or Shawl with a Center Pattern" in Knitpicks Iris Alpaca Cloud. What a lovely yarn! I had a challenging time in the beginning with the cast-on, until I discovered the waste-yarn cast-on! It also took me some time to find the rhythm for lace, but I think I'm okay now.

This is probably old news to all of you, but there are errata for VLT. None for the pattern I've embarked on, but for a few others.

Thanks for the errata link. I've purchased my yarn, but have to finish up a couple of other projects before I start my VLT - so I hadn't checked for any errors yet.

Linda, that yarn is lovely!

Thanks for the link. I hadn't seen that yet. Isn't Alpaca Cloud so soft and great?! I'm using the same yarn, but a different pattern from the book. I've knit with this yarn a few times and love it. I just wish it came in more colors.
