Lacey Frustrations

So I'm all ready to settle down and drive myself crazy knitting the lace for my garter. I went to Hobby Lobby (FAR from where I live, we don't have any craft stores where I live) and buy the tiny size 2 needles in a pretty shade of pink, come home, pull out the silk, and get to work. It's like knitting dental floss with tooth picks.

So I get big yarn and needles (ahhh...size 8) and decide to practice the pattern. 2 rows in it makes no sense.

or maybe I'm crazy, but here it is:
Cast on 13 stitches (ok, I can handle that)
R1: k2, yo, k2tog, p to end (this too, is with in my skill range)
r2: sl1, k2tog, psso, yo, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, sl1, psso, yo, k2tog, k1
The psso's are a little tricky, but I managed. I get close to the end of the row and I CANNOT KNIT STITCHES THAT AREN"T THERE!
I re-counted a bunch, and have officially decided this makes no sense and I quit.

I have been productive though, check out our save the dates:

And the bridesmaid's dresses:

They will be "grape" a slightly iridescent reddish toned purple. My maids like them, my mom hates them. "I hope you're going to have light pink flowers so there will be something spring about this wedding.

Only 9 more months! The wedding is officially my baby, and I can't wait for it to be birthed.

Hooray for awesome bridesmaid dresses. I'd love to have that dress just for regular life, you are a smart and kind bride!

I can't solve your lace problem, but I wish you luck with it.
