I've decided on using US 2 (2.75 mm) needles for this project, and am definitely going to need more yarn than I've got to finish it. I've got 9 reps of the leaf pattern done, and am only 12 inches (and 14 grams) into it ... lots of knitting to go!
The yarn I'm using is Graceful, from the Yarn Place. It's 100% wool, and is either 900 or 1200 yds/50 grams. The 'Blueberry' color shades from purple to blue, and I haven't gotten to the really purple part yet. I may get there by next Sunday ... it's a long repeat!
Today's post on my blog has a photo of the Alpine Lace, blocked for measuring.
