Project Details and Feedback
Duration of Project: January 27th to January 28th, 2011
Made for: My beautiful sister, Cara 
Modifications: This project has you knit two of the lace patterns then graft them together.  Instead of doing that I just knit the pattern until it was long enough.  A reason I could give for this is that I wanted to be sure I got it done with enough time to send it off..but honestly, doing it the original way just sounded like way too much of a hassle and I'm not that fantastic at grafting yet.  I also decided not to block this.
Make this pattern again? Yes, I'd like to try this pattern the original way because I think it looks lovely the way it was designed and the shortcut way I did it.

Final thoughts/ recommendations: This was a very fun project and a super fast knit! Great for last minute gifts!

What I learned/practiced in this pattern: Reading lace charts.
