What are you most proud of? This has been one of my more challenging designs to render. I am pleased with the vision finally coming together. I had actually started playing around with possibilities early this year. Then Id hit a design block or just wasnt quite happy yet with what I had. When Patternfish announced their 10,000th Design Competition, this gave me the motivation (and deadline date!) to tackle this design again. I am so pleased to be selected as one of the finalists. The winner will be chosen by popular vote. Id love it if youd take a moment to vote for Dragonfly Dreams to be the winner. Voting closes. Nov 18, 2011 EST.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? If youd prefer to make this scarf longer, each 24-row repeat adds 4 and takes 25 yards of yarn, 14 large beads and 92 small beads.

Thanks for the reminder that I need to update the comments here at Craftsy (they are updated on my own website which is linked above). I didn't win first place, but I did come in a very close 2nd. I had such terrific company that it was a honor to just be amongst such celebrities. Thank you for everyone's help in voting and cheering and voting for Dragonfly Dreams in the design competition.
