Herringbone jacket - at last

Some of you may remember the nightmare I was having a few months ago with the Herringbone Jacket I was knitting for my other half from 'Classic Knits for Men'.

WTF 2..

Well, I too am embarking on my first lace project and have now started the sleeve (it's a cardigan) more times than I care to imagine. It's not the trickiest lace pattern (k1, yfwd, k2, sl1, k2tog, psso, k2, yfwd,k1, yfwd) and then purl the other rows.

I'm just finding it hard to proceed in a mistake free vein and if I attempt to unravel anything, I'm not sure how the yo's work and end up starting all over.
