What are you most proud of? Tried the three needle cast on and couldn't master. Watched the UTube video of Emily Ochers cast on and all went smoothly. Learned to use a marker. Made the flowers using the smaller 8 double pointed. The smaller flower hade the 4 rounds, did two more rounds for the larger flower.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be persistent, some of this is challenging for someone who has not knit in the round. It is a wonderful learning process.
