What are you most proud of? I'm proud that I've mastered nupps and also have learned to pick up stitches...and shocked that I could do it and the result looks great.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have patience - this is not a fast project and deserves a lot of attention. There is a lot of stockinette stitching for relaxing, but the beading part and lace edgings will need you to be attentive. The results are sooooo worth it.

wow! I really think you should choose your "Progress" photo as the main photo so more people would stop to look closely - because this is really lovely. I'm so glad I clicked on it! Thanks for sharing!

Thanks Pam..I've done as you suggested and changed the picture to be my "progress Photo". I'm hoping to have this finished by the end of June. I've been distracted by two projects I knit in May and I have one I'm making for my sister now..but as soon as it's done I'll be back to finish up my Accola. Thanks Lyrics .... It's a great colour, nice and should go for it....
