What are you most proud of? I'm most proud of winning the Best in Show at our local county fair! The shawl won 1st place blue ribbon in its category. A green rosette ribbon - Special Award for Knit Garment. A purple rosette ribbon - Show Champion for Best of Knitted Article. A Best in Show trophy with my name added to the previous Best of Show winners which will be displayed at the Elko County Fairgrounds Exhibit Hall. Last but not least a plaque representing Best of Show - Crocheting, Knitting and Yarn.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The class taught by Laura Nelkin was excellent. She explained all of the techniques so a beginner to advanced person would understand. My advice would be to take the class one step at a time and in no time you will be a master.

It was my first attempt to knit lace, so I was very challenged by the class. By the end of the project itself, I was quite comfortable. I will be casting on for Skywalker very soon.
