What are you most proud of? I am so proud of the fact that I can do something I once thought unattainable. Lace shawls looked soooooo difficult and confusing, but after taking Laura's class, I gained all the skills I needed to be confident enough to try.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take Laura's class, "Mastering Lace Shawls", and be confident I also suggest using at least two ply yarn, and something with silk in it, it's smoother to work with. I had tried making the Glenallen with zueberball lace, and the yarn stuck to itself, piled, and made it difficult to pull back to the lifeline when I made mistakes.
