Answers to your questions
I never know where to post answers to questions in the comments - so I thought I'd just create a post. If you'd prefer I don't just let me know.
Kniterella - I'm planning on making the Cherry Leaf Shawl from Victorian Lace Toady on page 134/135. The colors in the hank of Legend I have are very autumnal, and if I start now I should have it done in a few months. It's a big undertaking for me. I've never knit lace from a chart or knit the border on seperately, so it's a challange.
Chris - I used the Baby Cable Rib pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks. It's a 4 stitch repeat pattern. I'd send them to you to feel, but I'm afraid you'll have to pry them off my feet. ;-)
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
