What materials did you use? Mountain Top Alpacas handspun in "Mardi Gras" though it looks more like something out of Lisa Frank

What are you most proud of? I'm very proud that this outrageous yarn choice doesn't completely overwhelm the lace pattern. I just really wanted to use this seizure-inducing yarn.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't do what I did. Use a solid or semi-solid yarn or something with very little variegation in the same color family. Your shawl will look much more respectable than mine.

It was a hand dyed alpaca lace weight I got online. The colorway was called Mardi Gras. The website isn't working, but this is their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Mountain-Top-Alpacas/267285756660652

It reminds me of stained glass!

I think this is gorgeous! I started with a multicolor yarn, chickened out, and went with a tonal yarn instead. Now, because yours look so good, I'll probably have to go back and do the shawl again in my original yarn choice! =D
