November KAL- Planning for Upsized Lace

I'm participating the November KALs for Tanis Fiber Arts, which is one holiday knitting KAL and one accessory knitting KAL. I'm knitting two things (one is a Christmas gift, shhh!) but the other is an experiment!

It has been raining and really overcast for 5 solid days. Good photos? What are those?
That skein on the far left is the Cobalt Colourway (Red Label) and the three skeins are the Deep Sea colourway (Green Label)
 
The Green Label is for Nashira, which I'm planning on upsizing. The pattern is originally for fingering weight yarn and a size 3 (3.25 mm) needle, but I'm going to knit it with aran weight yarn and a 5 mm (US 8) needle  for a big, wintery version. I can see how it will look in my head, and I hope that the awesomeness translates into reality on the needles!

Looking at Nashira and imagining it in Aran weight looks lovely in my head, too. Can't wait to see it.
