What advice would you give someone starting this project? USE your lifeline, and keep moving it up! See second photo. Markers are helpful, however, using the written pattern, I only marked the center stitch and the lace repeat sections on either side that added k1s before and after. The picot bind-off is attractive and a nice touch, but be aware it uses a crapton of yarn. I had something like 12 stitches left to bind off and came up about a yard short. :(

:) I'm glad you found a solution to the yarn shortage- your shawl is beautiful! (Is a crapton metric? :) Thanks for sharing your shawl and your story!

I think the metric version is crappe tonne, but that might be wrong.
