Queen Annes Lace

Just started Queen Annes Lace by MMario...I know a lot of you guys have knit it...any advice? Im doing it on DPN's right now in Cobweb weight Merino/Kid Mohair blend. Im trying to get it big enough to move to circulars soon as the DPNS I have are made of metal and rather clunky with this weight of yarn....any suggestions or tips would be appreciated!!!
