What materials did you use? I used KnitPro 6mm (interchangeable) circulars on a 100cm stiff cable. The yarn is from my unending 400m skein of acrylic. (Seriously. It's like Mary Poppins's bag). I also used KnitPro split ring stitch markers. I prefer them as they're like the perfect combo of both ring and locking markers. The photos are "unblocked". I'll be trying the wet-blocking method to get the lace to "pop" a little bit more and perhaps coax the cabled into a nicer shape. But, hey. It's acrylic. Only so much you can do.

What are you most proud of? This is the most time-intensive project I've yet finished. It's the first time I've experienced truly getting into the knitting meditative state. That was a delight.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use stitch markers to demarcate the repeats! This "traps" mistakes to a smaller section, where they can be fixed. Just make sure you use a different colour to indicate the start of a new round in case you lose track!
