The days before Christmas I also finished the first lace pattern I've ever knitted. I started it last Winter but I left it aside when weather became warmer. Later, in autumn 2007, I've never found the right moment to knit the last half skein...till december.
It is a diagonal pattern based on the repetition of *k2tog, yo, k1*, decreasing a stitch at the end of every k row, and increasing a stitch at the end of every p row. All wrong side rows are purled.
