What was your inspiration?
I was well on my way to completing Laura Nelkin's class "Mastering Lace Shawls, when I reviewed her class "Knitting with Beads". Instead of completing my Clarus shawl with the Mastering class, I waited until completing the Pioneer Cuff and then, completed my Clarus shawl using her beading instructions. I love it!
What are you most proud of?
Completing an intricate lace shawl with beading!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Relax, take a deep breath, and complete one row at a time. Don't sweat the future rows. Use life lines and review Laura's class as often as necessary. The end product is worth it!!
