Laminaria WIP

I've wanted to make this pattern for a really long time, I wound some Malabrigo Lace in the Verdes colourway for something else originally, but it pooled a little weird, and I didn't like it. So I tried many times to find something that was a good fit, all the while this wound ball of lace is staring at me. I can almost hear it stretching out. After a month or so..I knew I had to start something because I was terrified it was going to get all stretched out. I saw someone else's Laminaria in the same colourway, I figured this was my only shot. It kind of takes away from the lace, but it still looks nice. If I didn't start right away, I'd totally never use this yarn.

The star stitch is fun, but those k3tog parts are really annoying at first. I'm about 5 rows into the transition chart right now and I'm excited for the lace part!
Because I only have one skein of about 470 yards of lace, I'm going with the shoulderette version and hoping it will block out significantly.
