I also decided to use even finer Irish linen (ebay). It's 20 Lea. So, doing the handy dandy conversion (1Lea=300yd/lb) equals 6000yds/lb...which to my eye, feels like a #80 thread? Much thinner than what I used for the front door curtains. But all's well.
My swatch was 20stitches/3 inches, so I should be able to do 3 complete flowers for this curtain.
Cast on 180 +14 stitches using #0 needles.
Knit a few rows of stockinette, and I'm ready to rumble.
