What materials did you use? Cascade Epiphany (60% royal alpaca, 20% cashmere, 20% silk) from one of Craftsy's mystery boxes, 2 skeins brick red. Silver lined Czech glass beads (2 24-gram tubes). Size 6 circular needle (I used 32") 2 Stitch markers for the center

What are you most proud of? That I got fairly speedy with the beading and learned which beads were going to have too small an opening to draw the yarn through (if the bead didn't go low enough on the crochet hook, it wouldn't work).

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Be patient! It is a very easy pattern, but you do have to pay attention to the stitch count. Do the picot edging, even though it takes forever. Once it's finished it just makes the shawl 100% more elegant.

Planning on also adding some beads with the crochet hook. Looks great!
