Cast on - Floral Opulence

My stash consists of sock yarns and an odd assortment of one ball miscellany. So I was happy to find a project's worth of yarn, including the pattern, just sitting in my stash. A free book offer in 2014 led to the purchase of the Knit Picks Comfy 2014 Collection and the yarn to knit Flora Opulence by Rosalyn Jung. I'm using Knit Picks Comfy Sport in a lovely red called Pomegranate.
I quickly cast on and made some progress. The lace section of this pattern has a 34 stitch repeat that I am having trouble memorizing, but it is only a short section before the wide rib starts. I hope to get past the lace quickly and onto some simple knitting.
Happy Knitting everyone!
