Who knits lace?
I am becoming infatuated with some of the lace wrap patterns I am seeing. They look soft and airy as clouds. I haven't taken the plunge yet, as it is hard for me to find the correct weight of yarn (not ready to order it online yet), and the thought of casting on like 300 stitches is giving me hives right now.
Then there is the issue of finding enough "real estate" on a flat surface to properly block the piece when done.
So. Who knits lace? Anything I need to consider before trying? And what kind of yarn do you use?
