What are you most proud of? My new found passion to make lace. It always looked too hard to tackle.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't give up on this pattern. Slow down and enjoy the process and use markers and anything else it takes to following stitch by stitch until the natural rythm of the stitch progression kicks in. I used two magnetic boards for the charts. The large one flat on my table and the smaller (midway design) on a fold out tent-shape right beyond it the row I was doing and it butted up right against the larger design, so I did not have to move anything until I finished each row, then just scooted the tent up one. See my third photo.

Beautiful! How do you like the yarn? I'd like to try a non-wool.

I love this yarn. It is a wee bit stretchy, so you can really get in and work those stitches, and it goes right back into place.

This is going to be NICE!

Did you order it or buy it local?

I searched for it online. In my search box, I put in non-allergic yarn and bought it from Fiber Wild.com, but other internet sites have it and I saw it somewhere else on sale for $6/skein yesterday. Mine is the ecru, but I notice that it comes in a non-bleached natural too.
