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.
