necklace knitting

Until yesterday, I was bemoaning the lack of patterns for knitted necklaces. Now of course, there's one up on Knitty! However, pre-Knitty Winter 05 (ie: sunday!), I was determined to make a necklace out of the Lorna's Laces angora that I received at the Spider holiday party. I undrstand why 'Tina bought this: it is the softest, fuzziest yarn ever. I am in love.
Here are my attempts, all culled from Nicky Epstein's "knitting on the edge":

#1: Twin Leaf. Very pretty, but way too wide. This would be good for a scarf, but not a choker.

#2: Angel Wings Scallop Edging. Also pretty but even bigger than attempt #1. Oops, I started frogging before I remembered to snap a pic...

#3: Baby Tears. Ahh. Much better! It's both lacy and not too wide. Perfect for a choker.

PS: Several have commented about Kate. Jess Hutch's designs are adorable and funny. You should buy the pattern book if you haven't already!
