What are you most proud of? I tried a lace project before and didn't succeed. I am so proud of completing this much more difficult pattern. The video instructions were great and I learned a lot from the questions and suggestions of others taking the class.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Use markers and put in a lifeline after every section. I ran out of yarn with five Nova repeats left and had to use a second skein I had planned to use for another shawl. It is hand dyed and slightly darker:( I wish I had done the whole Nova in the second skein. Maybe only do one row of knit after section 6 since that is the solution offered for others to save some yarn.

Congratulations Diane, Your shawl is just beautiful. It hangs so well from your shoulders. You must be so proud. I hope mine turns out one half as well as yours does. I'm just starting the Planet section.

Good and bad news about this yarn. It bled blue through three or four soakings. This made the darker area of the last nova sections closer in color the the rest of the shawl. When it is draped you can't tell now.
