Ravelry and errata

I discovered Ravelry. After giving it just a quick glance I understand why most of the knitting (and as it turns out not only knitting) people are using it. I will try to dedicate a separate blog post to Ravelry, for now I just want to share a piece of important information I found. Remember my Reverse Psockology socks?
It turns out there is an errata for the pattern. As Anne Pattigrew, the creator of this pattern, mentions on her blog:

it is difficult to get the holes formed by the yarn-overs the same size
because of the transition between knit and purl stitches

I remember noticing it when working on my pair but I did not know if it was "normal" or if it happened because of my uneven knitting style, after all it was my first pair of socks.
For those of you who are working on these, here you can find a different version of the lacy pattern.

What a great blog! Its my first visit but I'll be back - you've provided so many links to check out and I'm hoping to try lace for the first time myself sometime soon!

Oh, thank you, you made my (uber-hot) day! I am happy you like my blog.

Lace is a lot of fun (did I say it enough times?) I am waaay too novice to knitting to offer advice but I would recommend starting with a smaller lace project to practice technique and get a feel and a rhythm of lace knitting.
