What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make your item a bit smaller than you think you need - mine came out a bit big because I added on a bit too much and as it is a knit, it tends to "grow". This process is very enjoyable - give it a try!

The beads bump it up to super elegant. I hope to be brave enough to add beads after I finish my first project.
