Who's a happy kitten?

My first yarn+needle purchase from knitpicks arrived yesterday and you bet I was swatchin the moment I sat down on the subway. The Lelah calls lace bit calls for 7&9's but they have not arrived from the other sale I bought from at knithappens but I can easily enough fit them on a 16" untill the 24" arrives.

This is going to make for some great semi-mindless knitting. Although I am swatching carefully. I've read on other blogs that this can be the top from hell if you dont get your guage in check.

3.25mm, 5.5mm, 4.0mm

I think I'm partial to the smaller guages. As Julie points out, "It looks more handknit than homemade".
