What are you most proud of? That I finished! Lots of other stuff kept me too busy and it took forever for me to get this done!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be prepared to go slowly and deliberately. I found it easy to make mistakes and did a lot of tinking back because I was distracted. Doing the swatch at the beginning of the center panel part is a really good idea- I did it as described and know I would have made many more errors had I not done that. It takes a while to "get" the pattern. After that it was much easier.

What a beautiful result. The bead and yarn combination works well with the shawl's pattern.
